The CCAI says that applications for the 2021 Matt Heuertz Scholarship Program are now being accepted. The program, administered by the non-profit CCAI Finishing Education Foundation (CCAIFEF), aims at encouraging students to pursue education that can lead to a career in industrial finishing.

The foundation has reportedly awarded more than US$100,000 in scholarship funds over the past five years. Scholarship recipients also receive a free one-year CCAI student membership.

‘Attracting new young talent is crucial to the future of our industry,’ said CCAIFEF executive director, Sheila LaMothe. ‘Each year we receive applications from an outstanding pool of students that are not only pursuing studies that could likely lead to a career in industrial finishing, but many of whom are already engaged in the industry through internships, summer employment and job shadow opportunities.’
