Deadline Approaching for GCADA Scholarship Program Applications



Dear GCADA Member Dealer:

As recently announced, the GCADA’s Educational Assistance Foundation has approved the amount and number of scholarships available to dependent(s) of member dealership employees or an employee of the dealership (full-time).

There are 50 one-year scholarships of $2,500 available for the 2014-2015 academic year, with classes beginning in August 2014. The deadline to apply is May 15, 2014. 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 his or her choice, with the Foundation’s approval.

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 form (found below) 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.

Click here to download the GCADA Scholarship Program letter and application.

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.
