A new scholarship from Bestbuy Distributors is aimed at helping students who want to peruse a career in the Canadian automotive industry.
Liam O’Connor is the first recipient of the $2,500 Bestbuy Scholarship. He hopes to have a career in the automotive industry and will be attending the University of Alberta in Edmonton. His application was submitted by Part Stop Auto & Industrial, a Bestbuy member in Spruce Grove, Alta.
Bestbuy will be offering up to two scholarships of $2,500 each twice per year to a son or daughter within the distributor’s network. Candidates are eligible to be from Bestbuy members, customers or vendors.
“At Bestbuy Distributors, we believe in encouraging the future leaders of our industry as they begin their post-education journeys,” said Jeff Van de Sande, president of Bestbuy Distributors. “Our goal is to support youth and strengthen longevity in the Canadian automotive market.”
The next scholarships will be made available for the 2018 spring semester.
