For the second year in a row, the Tri-County Car Club is awarding a $500 scholarship to a student pursuing an auto-related career.
The scholarship will be awarded in May by the club based in Campbellsville which has members from several counties.
"We obviously have a love for vehicle of all kinds and wanted to do something to assist a graduating senior," said Al Hardin, president of the club.
The winner of last year's scholarship was Nicholas Courtwright. He was selected from four applicants. He has enrolled in the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville. He is seeking a master's degree in mechanical engineering and hopes to some day design vehicles.
Those interested in the scholarship should send a letter of application no later than March 30 to the Tri-County Car Club in care of Stan McKinney, 1007 Deer Park, Campbellsville, KY 42718.
Applicants should include a transcript of their high school grades including their attendance records and a short statement as to why they wish to pursue an auto-related career. All applicants should also include a statement as to financial need.
The application should include contact information including home address and home telephone number. Applicants should also include the name of their high school guidance counselor and contact information for that person.
A committee consisting of members of the Tri-County Car Club will review the applications and select the scholarship recipient based on career objectives, financial need and school attendance record.
Information about the scholarship is also available on the club's Website, www.tri-countycarclub.com.
Students interested in becoming mechanics, learning body work, upholstery or any career related to the auto industry are eligible.www.tri-countycarclub.comThe scholarship will be paid directly to an auto-related school, not the recipient of the scholarship. Thus, applicants must also include the name of the school they plan to attend and the date they plan to begin their program of study.
