Applications for 2019 NECA scholarships now available

WAKEFIELD, Ma. — The application deadline is April 30, 2019.

WAKEFIELD, Ma. — In 2011, recognizing the increasing cost of post-secondary education, the New England Carwash Association (NECA) developed a scholarship program to assist its members, self-funded through money raised at dinner meetings and a golf outing, according to a press release.

Since then, it has awarded 17 $1,000-scholarships, the release continued.

In 2018, in recognition of Tom Rando’s contributions to the industry and NECA, as well as the many monetary contributions to the program made in his memory, NECA will award one of the $1,000 scholarships in his honor each year, the release noted.

Recipients are evaluated by a panel of NECA members who consider the following: high school/academic standing, leadership capabilities, community involvement, strength of character, personal achievement, plan of study and future goals, the release added; financial need also may be considered.

According to the release, to be eligible, an applicant must:

  • Be an employee, full- or part-time, for at least one year, or immediate family member of an employee, of any NECA-member company
  • Have graduated high school or the equivalent
  • Be enrolled, or plan to enroll, at an accredited post-secondary educational institution full- or part-time (not limited to traditional academic programs, a trade school, a community college, etc.)
  • Not have won a scholarship from NECA in the last year.

The application deadline is April 30, 2019, the release stated.

Contact the NECA office for an application ([email protected]) or download the application posted on the members-only page of the NECA website
