The automotive sector is a rapidly changing, highly technological industry offering lucrative careers close to home. The Foundation is playing a lead role in promoting these career opportunities for young people.
In 2018, the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC awarded over $40,000 in education grants to students pursuing careers in the automotive industry. Grants range in value from $500 to $2,500 and are provided as tuition credit or towards the purchase of new tools (grant funding is made to the post-secondary school with restricted use for tuition, or to an approved tool supplier).
The Foundation awards CarCareerBC education grants to eligible students in BC who wish to pursue post-secondary education or training leading to a career in the automotive industry.
This may include but is not limited to: service or repair training, business degree, marketing diploma etc. CarCareerBC grants provide financial support towards the cost of tuition and tools for recipients enrolled in applicable apprenticeship, training or education.
Through its charitable efforts and support for young people pursuing careers in BC’s automotive sector, the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC is continuing to bring awareness to one of the largest and fastest growing employers in BC.
