Apply for the chance for your school to receive $50,000 in 2011!!
You can "Fuel the Future" of the industry by applying for the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant through the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
The Collision Repair Education Foundation's 2011 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover $50,000 school grant application is now available for secondary and post-secondary collision programs. The application is available to download from the Education Foundation's web site at www.CollisionEducationFoundation.org, and must be postmarked by August 31, 2011. The winning school will be announced during SEMA 2011. Instructors are advised to begin the application early due to the required application information.
The Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant debuted in 2009 when Steel Center Area Vocational Technical School (Jefferson Hills, PA) was chosen as the recipient of the award. In addition to Steel Center AVTS receiving $80,000 from the award, the schools that applied for the 2009 grant still benefited from the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover program. In total, the 35 schools each received an average of $5,000 in products, supplies, and equipment for a total value over $175,000. Every school that applied for the grant received at least one item to benefit their students and collision program.
In 2010, the award went to Bridgerland Applied Technology College (Logan, UT). The 2010 applicants have already had the opportunity to receive items from Airgas, Fibre-Glass Evercoat, Sherwin-Williams, UltraWiz, as well as Cintas technician shirts. With the generous support from the industry, the Education Foundation is looking to at least double the total support from 2009 to 2010 for schools that applied for the grant.
The application is available in PDF format to download at our new web site, www.CollisionEducationFoundation.org. The application must be printed from the web site and faxed/mailed back to the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
The postmark deadline to apply for the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant is August 31, 2011.
