ARA Foundation awards scholarships

August 2012, Vol. 67 No. 8

Twenty-nine students’ educational goals just became a little easier to achieve, thanks to the $54,500 worth of ARA Foundation and affiliate scholarships awarded for the 2012/2013 academic year — including the new Bill Loomer Houston Rental Association Scholarship and the ARA of California Scholarships. The recipients are selected by the ARA Foundation scholarship committee.

“The winners, who were selected during an anonymous screening of applications, were awarded these scholarships based on their academic success, leadership, rental industry involvement, written essays on rental-related questions and references,” says Jenni Venema, ARA Foundation director of development. “Many received multiple scholarships, ranging from $500 to $3,000, which will go a long way in helping them pursue their education related to the equipment rental industry.”
