School Grant Opportunities

The Collision Repair Education Foundation offers different grant opportunities throughout the year for collision schools. As new opportunities arise, details will be emailed directly to the collision repair instructors and school administration. We encourage you to respond as soon as possible to these offers, as many times the product/donation is only available in a limited quantity.

If you are the collision instructor at a school and have not been receiving the information from the Education Foundation, please email info@ed-foundation.org.

Collision Repair School Solutions Survey

All secondary and post-secondary technical schools and colleges that have a collision repair program are invited to complete a “Collision Repair School Solutions” survey. The Education Foundation will use the results to track general program information, key academic performance indicators, and program needs for new tool and equipment to train the students.

As an incentive to complete the survey, a collision school will receive free electronic subscriptions and software licenses to information provider systems, estimating programs, shop management tools, and repair manuals from CCC Information Services, and Audatex. In addition, SCRS is offering free membership for those schools that complete the survey.

Schools will be required to retake the survey on an annual basis in order to renew their subscription to the software and any other memberships.

In-Kind Product Donations

The Education Foundation receives all types of donations including products, subscriptions, training, parts, and more. To be eligible for the donations, the school must complete the Collision Repair School Solutions Survey. In addition, if the school wants to receive priority for these donations, it is recommended they apply for the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant.

If you are the collision instructor at a school and have not been receiving the information from the Education Foundation, please email info@ed-foundation.org.

Ultimate Collision Education Makeover Grant

Our goal with the “Ultimate Collision Education Makeover” grant is to honor a school that has been doing an outstanding job in educating students in collision repair, but needs some financial assistance to improve their program’s teaching materials and equipment. With strained school budgets, we are honored to have the opportunity to bridge the program’s financial gap and to make a difference in the lives of the students studying collision repair.
