Car club offers scholarship

-A A +A

To applicants wanting to study auto-related fields.

Tri-County Car Club, based in Campbellsville, will award a $500 scholarship to a student studying an auto-related field each May.

Those interested in the scholarship should send a letter of application no later than April 30 to Tri-County Car Club, Stan McKinney, 1007 Deer Park, Campbellsville, KY  42718.

Applicants should include a high school transcript, attendance records and a short statement as to why they want to pursue an auto-related career. All applicants should also include a statement as to financial need.

The application should include contact information, including home address and home telephone number. Applicants should also include the name of their high school guidance counselor and contact information for that person.

A committee of Tri-County Car Club members will review the applications and select the scholarship recipient based on career objectives, financial need and school attendance.

Information about the scholarship is also available on the club's website at www.tri-countycarclub.com.

Students interested in becoming mechanics, learning body work, upholstery or any career related to the auto industry are eligible.

The scholarship will be paid directly to an auto-related school, not the recipient of the scholarship. Thus, applicants must also include the name of the school they plan to attend and the date they plan to begin their study.

The first priority of the scholarship is to help those planning to enter an auto-related career. However, if there are no applicants, as there were for last year, the money will be given to Campbellsville University's scholarship fund.
