The Cedar Rapids Region AACA Scholarship Program
Our club members love their old cars, but we also care deeply about the younger generation of car enthusiasts. Hence the establishment of an annual special scholarship to be awarded to qualified applicants.
The Cedar Rapids Region approved the award of three $1600.00 scholarships on an annual basis to students enrolled at the Kirkwood Community College, Cedar Rapids Iowa. The selection is based on academic merit for individuals pursuing either the automotive technology or auto body repair program of studies at the community college. The scholarships are awarded based on academic grade point average in high school and the national test scores such as the ACT or SAT.
Students must apply directly to Kirkwood and the Kirkwood Foundation staff review the applications and select the recipients based on the established criteria.
Three winners each year also receive a national membership in AACA and local regional club.
Students awarded the scholarships since 2008 are:
- Alan Duit Monticello, IA

- Chase Krueger Cedar Rapids, IA
