For the 2019-20 academic year, Charlotte, NC-based Autobell® Car Wash presented 136 of its team members in the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, and Maryland with scholarships toward the college or university of their choice. This year’s gifts total $169,250. Since its inception, the Autobell Car Wash Scholarship Program has awarded qualifying applicants more than $1.6 million in scholarship funding.
The scholarship program is open to current Autobell team members who have been employed with the company for a continuous 12 months. The selection process considers each student’s academic diligence and accomplishments, productive extracurricular activities, civic engagement, and letters from references familiar with the applicant through school and community involvement. The application also requires an essay that discusses an educational or creative aspect of their employment experience.
“The Autobell Scholarship Program gives us an opportunity to encourage pursuit of higher education for our employees while rewarding them for their hard work and dedication,” stated Autobell human resources manager Katie Sens. For more information, visit autobell.com.
