Consolidators: Auto Glass Now Opens Two New Locations
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded, with more than $100,000 in prizes available.
The Collision Repair Education Foundation announces that the application for the 2014 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant is now available online. The deadline to apply is June 6, 2014.
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded, with more than $100,000 in prizes available. The Makeover grant is available to high school and college collision school programs nationwide, with priority going to not-for-profit/public schools. The winning schools will be announced during SEMA 2014.
“Those collision school programs that complete the Makeover application are at the top of our priority list to assist as they have taken the time to complete the application and provide us with their itemized collision wish list,” said Director of Grant Programs Melissa Marscin. “It is because of this, we highly encourage collision industry members to help get their local schools involved so that they don’t miss out on the millions of dollars in donations that the Education Foundation provides every year through our supporters.”
As part of the Makeover grant application, schools provide their own itemized wish lists, which can include any tools, supplies and equipment that are needed. The organization’s Board of Trustees Selection Committee will select the winners of the awards and determine what items off the wish lists each school will receive.
The goal of the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant is to honor a school that has been doing an outstanding job in educating students in collision repair, but needs some financial assistance to improve its program’s teaching materials and equipment. With strained school budgets, the Education Foundation and industry supporters have the opportunity to bridge the program’s financial gap and to make a difference in the lives of the students studying collision repair.
