PPG Foundation Funds Refinish Student Scholarships
Feb. 1, 2018—The PPG Foundation has provided $20,000 in funding for the Collision Repair Education Foundation that will be awarded to students who have demonstrated interest in automotive collision repair and refinish.
The scholarships, $5,000 each, are awarded annually to full-time students attending a post-secondary school with a focus on degree programs in collision repair. The funds may be used to assist the students with educational expenses such as tuition, books, tools and equipment. Scholarship award winners will be announced later this spring.
“PPG proudly supports the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s effort to promote careers in the collision industry and assist future professionals as they train for a career,” said Domenic Brusco, PPG automotive sr. manager, MVP business solutions and industry relations. “It is more important than ever to showcase the industry as a rewarding career option for students and, through these scholarships, we can help move some of the financial barriers they face during their technical education.”
Industry members interested in working with the Collision Repair Education Foundation interested in supporting secondary and post-secondary collision repair students can email Brandon Eckenrode, director of development.
