The RPM Foundation, a not-for-profit dedicated to cultivating the next generation of automotive restoration and preservation craftsmen, and BMW Northwest, a family owned auto dealership in the Pacific Northwest, have finalized a new scholarship program for students at Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood, Wash.

The new BMW Northwest/RPM Foundation Scholarships will provide financial support for full-time students enrolled in Clover Park’s Automotive Technology Degree or its Restoration & Customization Certificate programs.

“We’ve been impressed with the good work of RPM across the United States and wanted to support their efforts while impacting students local to our dealership network,” said BMW Northwest President and CEO Manfred Scharmach. “We are dedicated to championing young apprentices in the trades needed to preserve our historic vehicles.”

The scholarship, which will provide financial support for two students during the 2017-2018 school year, is available to Washington state residents who meet requirements of enrollment, grade point average and financial need. Further information and application forms for qualified students are available through the Clover Park College Foundation’s website, cptc.edu.
