If you have employees at your rental business or manufacturer/supplier operation who plan to be in school next fall, encourage them to apply now for the $100,000 in scholarships available for the 2019-2020 school year from the ARA Foundation and its affiliate programs.

These scholarships can make a real difference. Just ask those who received scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year:

Quaid DeLacluyse, RAECO Rents, Bensenville, Ill., who received an ARA Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship worth $3,500 and an ARA of Illinois Scholarship worth $1,000 says, “I have always known that education is the cornerstone of creating a better tomorrow, but as time passes, education becomes more and more of a financial burden on those who choose to pursue higher education. However, it is with this generous scholarship that this burden is alleviated and the values of education and self-improvement can thrive. I could not be more grateful.”

Matthew Paton, EZE Rent-It Centre (86), Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada, who received an ARA Foundation Trade School Scholarship worth $3,000 says, “With the generous support of the ARA Foundation scholarship, I have started classes. My first course is on supervisory skills for managers. I go to school during the evening and on Saturday. For me, this scholarship offers a great opportunity to further my career and better my family. It is helping me gain the necessary skills to become a valued member of management with EZE Rent-It Centre.”

Douglas Bartholomew, Primax USA d/b/a Allight Primax, Charlotte, N.C., who received an ARA Foundation Graduate Scholarship worth $3,000 says, “I pursue my academics with the same passion and desire for excellence I have always worked to exemplify in my professional career. I look forward to using my MBA to further this industry I have been a part of for over 20 years.”

This is just a sampling. For more reasons to apply, have your employees check out the videos from other scholarship recipients. Also share the poster that was in the November issue of Rental Management.

Then tell them to apply at ARAfoundation.com/go/SA. Holiday breaks are an opportune time to get this done.

Applications are online, and just one application is necessary to be considered for all of the scholarships the applicant qualifies for.

For questions, go to the FAQ section of the ARA Foundation website or contact Joann Lay at 800-334-2177, ext. 265, or joann.lay@ararental.org.
