A regional promotional professionals association


College Scholarship

UMAPP Partners with the Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF) to manage our college scholarship program.

We offer a $1,250 collegiate scholarship through a competitive application process available to all staff of UMAPP member companies and their children.  

Why PPEF?  The Promotional Products Education Foundation is an industry-based educational, charitable, and nonprofit organization.   PPEF awards college scholarships to students who have a parent working in the promotional products industry or who are working for a company in the industry. 

  • High school seniors should complete the 4-year application (which will enter them for the UMAPP one-year, $1,250 scholarship as well as any PPEF scholarship). 

  • Current college students should complete the one-year application (and choose "UMAPP" as their regional when prompted).  

Deadline: March 15, 2024

Industry Designation Scholarship

UMAPP's program consists of three, $500 scholarships available to staff of UMAPP member companies.  Recipients are chosen by a separate UMAPP committee who reviews each application and awards the scholarships based on need and professional development goals. 

The scholarships may be used for any professional development that earns CEUs (continuing education units).  Suggestions include PPAI educational events and webinars.  

Watch for the 2025 application to be online and emailed in September 2024.
