Higher education is becoming increasingly difficult for students to afford, leading to a ballooning student debt crisis.
For students interested in working in collision repair technology, rising tuition at technical schools and high application and registration fees can be a deterrent from pursuing their dreams.
This scholarship seeks to ease some of the financial burden of higher education for students interested in studying at an institute that teaches collision repair. Any high school student or high school graduate interested in becoming a collision repair technician and/or studying at a school with a collision repair program is eligible to apply.
To apply, tell us why you’re interested in collision repair, how you hope to help others, and why you should win this scholarship.
Please write an essay that answers all of the following questions: Why are you choosing collision repair as your career? Why do you think you should be awarded this scholarship? How do you intend on helping others that are interested in collision repair, but appear to be lost in their options? If you are awarded this scholarship, what do you promise to try your best to achieve? What college or institute do you plan on attending?
The application deadline is Nov 25, 2021. Winners will be announced on Dec 25, 2021.
The scholarship award is $600 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 25, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
