The Foundation and its industry supporters offer over $200,000 in grants and scholarships annually, as part of their mission to promote collision repair education and create quality candidates for entry level job opportunities.
The Collision Repair Education Foundation 2019 grant and scholarship application period will start shortly.
The application period is open for high school and post-secondary collision students who will be attending career and technical schools and colleges in the fall of 2019.
