GCADA Scholarship Program: 2014-15 Academic Year


Please post the letter to employees and application on a company bulletin board or other area where staff members may readily view, and make copies available upon request.  Click here to download the GCADA Scholarship Program letter and application.

Dear GCADA Member Dealership Employee:

The Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Educational Assistance Foundation Board is pleased to announce, for the 23rd year, a series of one year College Scholarships for dependent(s) of member dealership employees or an employee of the dealership. In 2013, the GCADA awarded $125,000 (50—$2,500) in scholarships.  The scholarship award amounts for 2014 will be announced before the end of April.

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 2014-2015 academic year, with classes beginning in August 2014.

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


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


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


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 May 15, 2014.

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.
