The Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA) has announced the 2009 winners of the Marion Roberts Memorial Scholarship.
The award is an AIA member benefit for students pursuing a post-secondary education in any field of endeavour. The recipients, the children of AIA member company employees, are selected based on academic achievement, leadership skills, and community involvement.
“We extend our greatest congratulations and sincerest wishes to all recipients,” says AIA President Marc Brazeau. “The parents of these inspiring young adults should be extremely proud!
“It is often hard for individual companies, particularly small businesses, to have the opportunity to offer a scholarship program to their employees. As a national association, AIA is able to provide this scholarship as a member service. AIA encourages all member companies to increase awareness of this scholarship opportunity with their employees so that even more admirable young adults can benefit from this valuable service,” concludes AIA President Marc Brazeau.
The Marion Roberts Memorial Scholarship applicants do not have to be pursuing a career in the aftermarket and can be pursuing any field of study, at any post-secondary level, at any Canadian college or university.
The Marion Roberts Memorial Scholarship was developed to provide assistance to children of employees of AIA member companies attending a post-secondary institution. These employees are encouraged to ensure that their child applies for this scholarship.
Applications for 2010 will be mailed to AIA members in the spring, or students can download a copy from the AIA web site www.aiacanada.com.
The next deadline for applications is July 15, 2010.
