From CollisionWeek ©

The Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 2013 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover $50,000 school grant application is now available online at the Education Foundation’s website and must be completed by May 31, 2013.

Two $50,000 grants (one secondary, one post-secondary) will be awarded this year as well as several secondary prizes of $10,000. 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. The Makeover grant is available to secondary and post-secondary collision school programs nationwide, with priority going to not-for-profit/public schools. The winning schools will be announced during SEMA 2013.

As part of the Makeover grant application, schools provide their own, itemized wish list, which can include any tools, supplies, and equipment that are needed by the collision program. Each of the winning schools will have their $50,000 wish list fulfilled through the Collision Repair Education Foundation and industry donors/supporters.

The goal of the 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. With 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.
