Deadline for Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Ultimate Collision Education Makeover Approaching
May 11, 2015—Applications for the Collision Repair Education Foundation's annual Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant are due May 29.
All high school and college collision programs are encouraged to apply.
“With less than a month before the deadline, I encourage all schools that have not started to consider applying,” said Melissa Marscin, director of grant programs. “The schools that apply will not only be eligible for the $200,000 in cash prizes we are offering but the applicants will also receive first chance at any in-kind of donation we receive. That could be anything from new uniforms to tape to larger equipment. Last year, each applicant school got an average of $7,500 donations and we hope to grow that even more this year.”
The goal of the Ultimate Collision Repair Makeover grant is to help a school that has been doing an outstanding job educating students in collision repair but needs a little extra help financially.
As part of the application, schools provide a wishlist of items needed by the collision program. The organization’s Board of Trustees Selection Committee will select the winners and determine the items each school will receive.
The winners will be announced during SEMA 2015.
