The National Corvette Museum is a big supporter of education, what with its Driver’s Education, Driver Safety Awareness Day, Andy Pilgrim’s Traffic Safety Education Foundation, scavenger hunts for Scout groups, and teacher resources and field trips.
But that’s not the only way the NCM is helping students across the United States.
Thanks to funding from the National Corvette Restorers Society Foundation, the Museum offers an annual scholarship in the amount of $2,500 for students pursuing a degree related to the automotive, museum or non-profit industry, or a field which would work in those industries (i.e., human resources, finance, marketing, information technology, etc.).
Applicants must be NCM members or children or grandchildren of NCM members (membership must be current at the time of application and award).
Applications are made available online in January/February each year to students who want to apply. Payments are made to the winner of the scholarship in September after proof of their successful enrollment is presented to the scholarship committee.
You can get all the details on the NCM website at https://www.corvettemuseum.org/explore/educational-programs/.
Who knows? This scholarship could help the future president of the Museum, or General Motors, or maybe even the designer of the C10 Corvette pay for their college education!
