Women’s Board 2009 Scholarship Application Deadline Extended

The deadline for students to apply for the 2009 Women's Board Scholarships has been extended to Friday, May 29.

Every year, the Car Care Council Women’s Board (WB) offers two types of scholarships: a high school scholarship and a technician scholarship. The high school scholarship is available to female high school students who plan on pursuing a career in the automotive field after graduation by attending an ASE-certified, post-secondary automotive technology program.

The technician scholarship is available to women who have completed at least one year in an ASE-certified, post-secondary automobile technology program, and plan on entering the automotive field after graduation.

In 2009, for high school students, one scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded, in addition to a free student membership to the Car Care Council Women’s Board. For the post-secondary students, three women will be awarded scholarships, two for $1,000 and one for $2,500.

Both women will also receive free student memberships to the Car Care Council Women’s Board. In addition, the $2,500 scholarship winner will be awarded a trip to Las Vegas, Nev., to receive the award at the Car Care Council Women’s Board annual awards reception, scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2009. The reception is part of the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX), during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW) in Las Vegas.
