Jan. 15, 2015—The Collision Repair Education Foundation has announced that the application for its Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant is now available for high school and post-secondary collision school programs.

The Makeover grant program is in its seventh year and new this year, the two annual Makeover grants will be in the names of Allstate Insurance and State Farm Insurance, honoring the companies for their continued support of the Collision Repair Education Foundation.  

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 high school and college collision school programs nationwide, with priority going to not-for-profit/public schools. The winning schools will be announced during SEMA 2015.

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. The organization’s board of trustees selection committee will select the winners of the awards and determine what items off the wish lists each school will receive.

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.

The Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant application is available online at CollisionEducationFoundation.org and are due by May 29.
