There are 11 new recipients to receive the 2020 WIN (The Women’s Industry Network) College Student Tuition and Conference Scholarship Award.
It is presented annually to deserving students enrolled in a post-secondary collision repair technology programs. Each recipient receives a $1,000 scholarship to continue their post-secondary education in collision repair and complimentary registration to attend the 2021 WIN Educational Conference. They are also provided the opportunity to be mentored by one of the Most Influential Women (MIW) honorees or a member of the WIN board of directors.
“With the support of our sponsors and members, WIN is able to offer scholarships and financial assistance to multiple female students each year to help them advance in the collision repair industry,” says Debbie Menz, 2020 co-chair of the Sponsorship Committee. “WIN understands that the cost of education, or continued education, has the potential to be a hurdle for students. So, this stipend, along with actual mentoring opportunities and interfacing with other, successful women in the collision repair marketplace, have proven to be one of the real pillars of the WIN organization.”
