Each year, the ARA Foundation and its affiliate programs offer scholarships to help students who are the rental industry’s future as they attend colleges, community colleges, technical schools or graduate schools.
This summer, the Foundation and its affiliates chose 29 students to receive scholarships worth a total of $54,500 for 2012/2013.
“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,” said Jenni Venema, ARA Foundation director of development. “Many received multiple scholarships, ranging from $500 to $3,000.”
Daniel R. Imbro of Party Time Rental and Events in Little Rock, Ark., received the Leonard Hawk Founders Scholarship, the Foundation’s top scholarship worth $3,000. He is grateful for this opportunity. “Receiving the Foundation scholarship gives me the ability to fully fund my education and attend a college that I would otherwise have been unable to attend.”
