The Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) is now accepting applications for its 2017 Matt Heuertz Scholarship Program. The primary objective of this program is to encourage advanced education in finishing technologies.

The scholarship program is maintained by the National CCAI and donations from CCAI Chapters.

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

To view the criteria, selection process and to apply online, visit www.ccaiweb.com, click on the EDUCATION tab, and then scroll down to Scholarship Program. Students must complete a CCAI National scholarship application and provide a transcript or other grade verification and a resume with photo. The application deadline is 3 April 2017.
