PPG Funds Refinish Student Scholarships Through CREF

The PPG Foundation has provided $20,000 in funding for the Collision Repair Education Foundation, which will be awarded to students who have demonstrated a career 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.


Domenic Brusco, PPG Automotive Sr. Manager, MVP Business Solutions & Industry Relations, said, “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. It is more important than ever to showcase the industry as a rewarding career option for students and, through these scholarships, we can help remove some of the financial barriers they face during their technical education.”


Industry members interested in working together with the Collision Repair Education Foundation in supporting secondary and post-secondary collision repair students, instructors and their school programs should contact Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode at 847.463.5244 or Brandon.Eckenrode@ed-foundation.org.
