School Grants Announced by Collision Repair Education Foundation


The goal of Col­li­sion Repair Edu­ca­tion Foundation’s 2013 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 their program’s teach­ing mate­ri­als and equip­ment. Two $50,000 grants (one sec­ondary, one post-sec­ondary) will be award­ed next year, along with sev­er­al sec­ondary prizes of $10,000, dur­ing SEMA 2013. The school grant appli­ca­tion is now avail­able at the foundation’s web­site and must be com­plet­ed by May 31, 2013.

Dur­ing a time of 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. The program’s pri­or­i­ty is going toward not-for-prof­it/pub­lic schools. Instruc­tors are advised to begin the appli­ca­tion ear­ly and indus­try pro­fes­sion­als are encour­aged to get involved with the Makeover grant by work­ing with their local school’s col­li­sion instruc­tors to help them apply.
