When we talk about the National Corvette Museum, we generally talk about a new Corvette donation, a new display, or an upcoming event or Corvette giveaway. But, did you know that they also offer a scholarship for college students as well?
Through a partnership with the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS), the National Corvette Museum is able to offer an annual $2,500 scholarship. The scholarship is open to NCM members or children or grandchildren of NCM members. Your membership must be current at the time of the application and subsequent award. In addition, applicants must have been accepted into an accredited post-secondary school, technical school, college, or university and they must be going after a degree related to the automotive, museum, or non-profit industry, or a field that could work in those industries like HR, finance, marketing, or IT. They also must be enrolled in 12 or more credit hours per semester.
Like most scholarships, applicants will need to document the source of their educational funds. In addition to the usual academics, extracurricular activities and any automotive, museum, or nonprofit volunteer experience will be considered as well.
The scholarships are given for a single academic year. The awards are paid in September after the student provides documentation of their successful school enrollment.
Registration is now open. The application form can be downloaded here and all submissions for the 2021-2022 academic year are due by February 28th, 2021. Updates on the program will be published through the NCM’s magazine, social media, website, and email lists. Make sure you complete all the fields properly as they don’t consider incomplete applications or those with errors.
For more information on the NCM’s scholarship program or to apply for it, head on over to the NCM’s website. Remember that registration ends on February 28th. Good luck to all those who apply!
