Posted on December 6, 2019

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) and Michelin North America Inc. have announced that the application period for the 2020-2021 Michelin/TIA Scholarship is now open.

Michelin and TIA will award a total of $6,250 in new scholarships to selected students, including one $3,000 award (a total of four years not to exceed $12,000) and two $1,625 awards (a total of four years not to exceed $6,500 each). The award will be applied to tuition, fees and books.

Applicants must be part-time employees or the dependent children of full-time employees of TIA member tire dealers. (Dependent children include natural children, adopted children, legal wards or resident stepchildren.) The employee must be employed by the firm at the time of application. Michelin employees and dependent children are not eligible.

Applicants also must be high school seniors planning to pursue a post-secondary education at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational technical school. And applicants must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale through the Spring 2019 term.

All recipients must be enrolled full-time each semester and working toward an undergraduate degree.

The deadline for submission of the online portion of the application is Feb. 3, 2020. The application form can be found at www.scholarshipprograms.org/mtia.

The Michelin/TIA Scholarship has been awarded every year since 2000 to either part-time employees or dependent children of full-time employees of TIA member tire dealers, according to TIA.

Since the scholarship’s inception, more than $485,000 has been awarded to 66 recipients who have gone on to attend accredited two-year, four-year, technical or vocational schools.
