Canadians Among Global Automotive Scholarship Recipients
A total of 132 students will receive the annual Global Aftermarket Symposium Scholarship in 2001, including 20 Canadian students from schools across the country. The Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium Scholarship is funded through proceeds from the annual Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium. The two-day program brings together numerous industry executives to examine issues and trends facing the aftermarket. The scholarships are focused on providing assistance to individuals pursuing automotive studies at technical colleges and vocational schools or college-level programs.
The scholarship is unique in that students may receive two financial grants: one to assist in tuition payments while they are in school; and an equivalent matching grant for all scholarship recipients who graduate from their program. Graduates must provide proof of employment in the automotive aftermarket for at least six months following graduation.
The Co-Chair of the Attracting and Retaining People Committee of the Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF), John Norris, advises that their Committee is looking very seriously at these scholarships with a view to encouraging industry donations across Canada.
