Zurich supplies scholarship money for aspiring techs
Insurance provider Zurich Financial Services Group is donating $10,000 in scholarship money to the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS).
Scholarships will be awarded to young adults who want to become qualified automotive technicians.
"The typical scholarship award amount is $1,000, but qualified applicants may be eligible for additional funding," say Zurich officials.
"Applicants must either be a graduating high school senior or have graduated from high school within the past two years. An exception to the two-year requirement will be made for military or religious service."
This is the second donation from Zurich to fund GAAS scholarships in 2007. In late October, the company donated $10,000 to the scholarship fund.
Since GAAS began the program in 1996, more than 1,300 scholarships have been awarded, 140 this year alone.
