The East Valley Institute of Technology’s Collision Repair program has been selected to receive a $50,000 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover Grant from the Collision Repair Education Foundation at I-CAR.

EVIT was the only high school program in the nation selected for the grant, which honors a school that has been doing an outstanding job in educating students in collision repair.

EVIT’s grant was announced this week at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas. Over 140 high school and college collision repair programs applied for the grant. Post-secondary recipients included Saint Cloud Technical and Community College, Saint Cloud, MN; Texas State Technical College, Waco, TX; and Athens Technical College, Athens, GA.

The funds will be used to purchase tools, supplies and equipment.

“With strained school budgets, the Education Foundation and industry supporters have the opportunity to bridge the program’s financial gap and to make a difference in the lives of the students studying collision repair,” a press release from the Collision Repair Education Foundation said.
