The scholarship is awarded annually to an individual who works in an ASA Collision Division member-business and displays a desire to improve their business skills through management education.

The Automotive Management Institute (AMi) is now accepting applications for the 2016 Emil Stanley Merit Award.

The award recipient will receive $1,000 toward expenses to attend the 2016 International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE | CARS) in Anaheim, Calif., August 10-12. NACE is sponsored by ASA and offers a comprehensive lineup of AMi, industry and technical seminars, and an exposition with hundreds of diverse exhibiting companies displaying the latest equipment, products and 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
  • Applicants must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through management education
  • Applicants must own or work for a business that is an ASA member in good standing
  • And, if the applicant is not the business owner, he or she must be recommended by the business owner

AMi Trustees and their employees, and the Emil Stanley 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.
