CREF To Offer Over $200,000 in Grants & Scholarships to Collision Students


The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) 2019 grant and scholarship application period is now open to high school and post-secondary collision students who will be attending career and technical schools and colleges in the fall.


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.


Application information for CREF grants and scholarships is posted on its website at https://www.collisioneducationfoundation.org/student-scholarship-and-grant-application-2/. This year’s deadline to apply is Feb. 14, 2019, and winners will be chosen and notified by phone or mail in April and May.


Melissa Marscin, Collision Repair Education Foundation director of grant programs, said, “We want to thank the collision industry for the support we receive that enables us to continue our scholarship and grant program for 2019. We could not offer over $200,000 in awards this year without their generous support. I encourage all students to consider applying, as the awards can be life-changing by helping students graduate without debt or with a tool box ready for employment.”


The Collision Repair Education Foundation aims to support collision repair educational programs, schools and students to create qualified entry-level employees and connect them with an array of career opportunities.
