The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) is accepting applications for the annual $1,000 Tom B. Babcox Memorial Scholarship.

AMI’s resource development effort, EXCEL, in conjunction with Babcox Media, established the scholarship, which is awarded to an Automotive Service Association (ASA) Mechanical Division member who strives to be, or is presently working, in a management capacity.

The scholarship will be applied toward the recipient’s expenses to attend the 2012 Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) in New Orleans, Oct. 10-13.

CARS is sponsored by ASA  and offers an educational lineup of AMI seminars, technical courses and industry sessions, a trade show and the opportunity to network with other automotive service professionals.

To be eligible for the award, the following requirements must be met: applicants must work in the mechanical repair industry; must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through management education; must own or work for a business that is an ASA member in good standing; and, if the applicant is not the business owner, must be recommended by the business owner.

AMI Trustees and their employees, and the Babcox Scholarship Selection Committee and their employees, are not eligible to apply.

      To request a scholarship application, call AMI at (800) 272-7467, ext. 101, or fill out a scholarship application online at www.amionline.org. Applications must be received by AMI on or before Aug. 24, 2012. The scholarship recipient will be notified by AMI on or before Aug. 31, 2012.

      AMI was established to answer the demand for continuing education tailored specifically for the business needs of the automotive service industry. The Institute offers the Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation, the first business management accreditation exclusively for the automotive service professional.

To date, AMI programs have attracted more than 212,000 enrollments throughout North America. AMI is a not-for-profit educational foundation to which tax-deductible contributions can be made.
