The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) is accepting applications for the $1,000 Arrowhead Automotive Aftermarket’s “High Octane” Scholarship. AMI’s resource development effort, EXCEL, in conjunction with Arrowhead Automotive Aftermarket, established the scholarship, which is awarded to an Automotive Service Association (ASA) Mechanical Division member who strives to be, or is presently working in a management capacity.
Arrowhead Automotive Aftermarket of Overland Park, Kansas, (formerly known as Automotive Specialty Markets) is now a division of Arrowhead General Insurance Agency and continues as a leader in the automotive business insurance industry, and provides the scholarship program specifically to address the educational needs of automotive service and repair businesses.
The scholarship will be applied toward the recipient’s expenses to attend the 2015 Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) July 23-25 in Detroit. CARS is sponsored by ASA and offers an educational lineup of AMI seminars, technical training courses and industry sessions, an exposition and the opportunity to network with other automotive service professionals.
To be eligible for the award, the following requirements must be met: applicants must work in the mechanical repair industry; must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through education and training; must own or work for a business that is an ASA member in good standing; and, if the applicant is not the business owner, must be recommended by the owner. AMI Trustees and their employees, and Arrowhead and its employees, are not eligible to apply.
To request a scholarship application, call AMI at 817-514-2900, ext. 129, or complete an application online at amionline.org. Applications must be received by AMI on or before June 15. The scholarship recipient will be notified by AMI on or before June 20.
