The New Car Dealers Foundation of BC will award CarCareerBC Education Grants to eligible students in British Columbia who wish to pursue a course of post-secondary education or training leading to a career in the automotive industry. These may include, but are not limited to: service or repair training, business degree, marketing diploma… any type of training that could be applied to a career in a new car dealership!
We invite applications from young men and women who have established residence in British Columbia by living in the province for 12 consecutive months during the year prior to applying for the Education Grant. A CarCareerBC Education Grant will provide financial support towards the cost of tuition and books for recipients enrolled in applicable apprenticeship, training or education.
The New Car Dealers Foundation Board of Directors acts as the Award Committee and award a number of grants each year ranging from $500 to $5,000. The Award Committee will be looking for candidates who have a serious interest in working in the Automobile Industry in British Columbia and who have the desire and qualifications to succeed. Candidates will be judged on the basis of the substantiated information contained in their application, support material and recommendations provided.
We have partnered with the following educational institutions to offer the CarCareerBC Education Grant directly through the school.
