I-CAR Announces $30,000 in Student Scholarships

I-CAR Education Foundation has announced the availability of $30,000 in collision repair training and education scholarships

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – In support of its new mission, the I-CAR Education Foundation has announced the availability of $30,000 in collision repair training and education scholarships to assist deserving students pursuing careers in the collision industry.

The scholarships are in part funded by the Collision Repair Education Campaign, formerly the $100 per Collision Repair Facility per Year Campaign.

I-CAR Education Foundation Trustee Geralynn Kottschade stated, “The future of the collision industry is in the young men and women enrolled in our career and technical schools and colleges. We take great pride in being part of the development and training of our future technicians and look forward to offering continued support.”

Applicants for the scholarships who are attending secondary schools must be seniors in a collision repair training class with plans to continue their education in the collision industry after graduation.

Applicants from post-secondary schools must be enrolled in training programs relevant to collision repair. The scholarships will pay for post-secondary education, to apply for I-CAR points through the Industry Training Alliance or to attend training programs offered by I-CAR.

There will be two $5,000 scholarships: one winner from a secondary school and one winner from a post-secondary school. Additionally, there will be five $2,000 runner-up scholarships in each category.

All entries must be received by the I-CAR Education Foundation prior to April 1, to be eligible. Winners will be chosen in April and notified by mail and phone.

Students should visit www.ed-foundation.org to apply. The applicant will be required to submit an essay, and the instructor will be required to submit an online recommendation.
