“Each year we strive to increase the amount of scholarships we can give and the success of this fundraiser shows how much our membership takes that to heart,” said Vonda Lee, Women’s Board Education and Development Committee chair. “This year we managed to nearly double the $28,000 that we awarded in 2015.”

In 2015, the WB gave away eight scholarships, four to postsecondary students and four to high school students. The Becky Babcox Women’s Board scholarship recipient, a postsecondary student, received $5,000, and a trip to the 2015 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, Nev.

The Scholarship Strides fundraiser collected donations online from industry members as well as friends and family of the WB membership and conference attendees. The scholarship program is also funded by additional donations, sponsorships and a grant from the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.

The WB is now accepting applications online at www.automotivescholarships.com/WB/. The deadline is March 31, 2016. For more information, visit http://www.carcare.org/womens-board/scholarships/.
