BETHESDA, Md. — The Auto Care Association (ACA) has extended the application deadline for its Auto Care Careers Internship Scholarships to June 30.
To apply for one of the 22 available scholarships, interns should visit the "Get Started" section of the AutoCareCareers.org website.
Auto Care Careers Internship Scholarships are valued up to $2,500 and are intended for those enrolled in internship programs with direct application to the auto care industry in fields such as engineering, supply chain management, information technology, finance, sales and marketing, and other business functions.
Auto care industry companies that have an internship program should encourage eligible students to apply, the association said.
The scholarships aim to help ease the financial burden of temporary relocation for interns traveling more than 100 miles from their permanent address to the internship, including the costs of travel, lodging, utilities and meals during the internship period.
"We have found that many students are still concentrating on their studies well into May, so we decided to extend the application deadline to give them time to secure an internship position and submit the application form," said Katy McQuiston, manager, ACA job and career development.
"These scholarships allow talented interns to focus on gaining valuable, real-world industry experience rather than worrying about expenses."
