The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) is accepting applications for the Matt Heuertz Scholarship from students who are currently enrolled in education programs that could lead to a career in the finishing industry. The objective of the scholarship program is to encourage advanced education in finishing technologies. 

The application deadline is April 2. Awards will be announced in June at CCAI’s annual meeting in Sarasota, Florida.

“CCAI is actively investing in our industry’s future,” says Anne Goyer, CCAI executive director. “We have had an outstanding group of students who have received CCAI scholarships over the past several years, and many have found employment in the finishing industry. We’re committed to continuing to support students and leading them to a career in finishing.”

Qualified candidate applications will be reviewed by the National CCAI Education Committee for the National Scholarship Program. Award amounts vary and are determined by the national office. Scholarship recipients will also receive a free one-year student membership in CCAI. Applications will also be sent to regional chapters that provide additional scholarship funding for students in their vicinities. 

To view the criteria and selection process, and to submit an application, visit ccaiweb.com and click on the Education tab, and then scroll down to Scholarship Program. Students must complete the application, and provide a transcript or other grade verification, and a resume with photo.

CCAI also has created a Careers in Finishing Guide for anyone interested in learning more about the variety of opportunities available in the industry. This guide can be downloaded from the organization’s website at ccaiweb.com/?student, and printed versions are available by contacting Kelly LeCount at kelly@goyermgt.com or 859-356-1030.
