The Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA) announced that the John Mattos Memorial Tool Scholarship is now open for application submissions from currently enrolled students and recent graduates (within the past one year) who reside within Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C. This $1,000 scholarship, as part of the longstanding Jerry Dalton Memorial Education Fund (JDMEF) within WMABA, was enacted in memory of the late John Mattos, Sr., of Mattos Pro Finishes.
"We’re excited to offer this memorial scholarship as part of our education initiatives within the association," said WMABA President Brad Whiteford. "WMABA strives to create programs that make a lasting difference. The response received from this scholarship will also give us an indication of how many students are in need of tool funding to go out into the workforce."
Applications for the John Mattos Memorial Tool Scholarship will be accepted through May 31. The application is available online at www.wmaba.com.
