GCADA Scholarship Program

 

GCADA’S  EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE FOUNDATION OFFERS COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDING

Dear GCADA Member Dealer:

Please post this letter on a company bulletin board or other area where employees may view, and have copies of the letter and application available to employees.  Click here to download and print these items.

The Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Educational Assistance Foundation Board is pleased to announce, for the 21st year, a series of one year College Scholarships for dependent(s) of member dealership employees or an employee of the dealership.

The applicant must be a graduating high school senior or presently attending an accredited college or university and show need and merit to be considered for one of the GCADA scholarships available.  The applicant may choose the accredited college or university of their choice, with the Foundation’s approval.  The scholarships will be awarded for the 2012-2013 academic year, with classes beginning in August 2012.

All applicants who wish to make application for the scholarship must meet the following criteria:

A.      Must be a dependent of full-time personnel or employed full-time at a GCADA member dealership.

B.       Must show need, merit, and a strong ambition to succeed in college.

C.      Must correctly complete the enclosed form that allows the applicant to be considered for the scholarship. Directions for completion of the application are:

  • Type or print clearly.
  • Essay expressing need, merit and a strong ambition to succeed in college.
  • Enclose two (2) letters of recommendation, excluding relatives.
  • Enclose high school or college transcripts.
  • Be sure to sign and date the application.
  • Return the above information to:

Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association

Attn:  Kathleen Rutherford

10100 Brecksville Road

Brecksville, OH 44141

  • Must receive all required materials no later than April 30, 2012.

The Foundation Board will not consider any incomplete applications. This program is only possible because of your employer’s support and membership in the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association.  Your dealer understands the importance of you and your family to the dealership.  Hopefully this will help dealership employees defray some of the costs of higher education.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to call Kathleen at the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association at 440.746.1500.

Sincerely,

Louis Vitantonio, Jr.

President
