Dear GCADA Member Dealer:
At a recent meeting of the GCADA’s Educational Assistance Foundation, the board approved raising the amount and number of scholarships available to dependent(s) of member dealership employees or an employee of the dealership (full-time).
There are now 50 one-year scholarships of $2,500 available for the 2012-2013 academic year, with classes beginning in August 2012. The deadline to apply has been extended to May 15, 2012. 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. The applicant may choose the accredited college or university of their choice, with the Foundation’s approval.
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.

Brecksville, OH 44141
· Must receive all required materials no later than May 15, 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.
