The Automotive Management Institute (AMi) announced it is now accepting applications for the annual $1,000 BodyShop Business Magazine Scholarship. AMi, in conjunction with Babcox Media, established the scholarship, which is awarded to an Automotive Service Association (ASA) Collision Division member who strives to be, or is presently working, in a management capacity.
The scholarship money will be applied toward the recipient’s expenses to attend the 2016 International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE | CARS) in Anaheim, Calif., August 10-12. NACE | CARS is sponsored by ASA and offers a comprehensive lineup of AMi, industry and technical seminars, an exposition with hundreds of diverse exhibiting companies displaying the latest equipment, products, services and technology available to today’s collision repair industry.
To be eligible for the award, the following requirements must be met: applicants must work in the collision repair industry; must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through management education; must own or work for a business that is an ASA member in good standing; and, if the applicant is not the business owner, must be recommended by the business owner. AMi trustees and their employees, and the Babcox Scholarship Selection Committee and their employees, are not eligible to apply.
To request a scholarship application, call AMi at (817) 514-2929 or email [email protected]. Applications must be received by AMi on or before July 1, 2016. The scholarship recipient will be notified by AMi on or before July 8, 2016.
