The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) is accepting applications for the $1,000 Zurich “High Octane” Scholarship. AMI’s resource development effort, EXCEL, in conjunction with Zurich, formerly Universal Underwriters Group, established the scholarship, which is awarded to an Automotive Service Association (ASA) Mechanical Division member who strives to be, or is presently working in a management capacity.
Zurich introduced the scholarship program specifically to address the educational needs of the automotive aftermarket. A leader in the automotive insurance industry, Zurich provides a range of customized products for the automotive aftermarket.
The scholarship will be applied toward the recipient’s expenses to attend the 2013 Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) in Las Vegas, Oct. 16-18. CARS is sponsored by ASA and offers an educational lineup of AMI seminars, technical training courses and industry sessions, a trade show and the opportunity to network with other automotive service professionals.
Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) is the premier event dedicated to the automotive service and repair industries. Created in 2008 to bring all segments of the industry together under one comprehensive, all-inclusive event, ASRW features two events: NACE and CARS.
To be eligible for the award, the following requirements must be met: applicants must work in the mechanical repair industry; must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through education and training; must own or work for a business that is an ASA member in good standing; and, if the applicant is not the business owner, must be recommended by the owner. AMI Trustees and their employees, and Zurich and its employees, are not eligible to apply.
To request a scholarship application, call AMI at (800) 272-7467, ext. 101, or fill out a scholarship application online at www.amionline.org. Applications must be received by AMI on or before Aug. 23, 2013. The scholarship recipient will be notified by AMI on or before Aug. 30, 2013.
