To recognize ABSC’s vital contribution to the automotive industry, CADA created a scholarship for students enrolled in the ABSC Bachelor of Business – Automotive Management program through Georgian College.
The CADA Scholarship is in honour of Richard C. Gauthier, who was the President and CEO of the CADA from 1996 to 2016.
Gauthier tirelessly supported the ABSC as a guest speaker and lecturer, and devoted countless hours with the students and staff. He worked with the Board and Georgian College to develop the four-year Automotive Business Degree program, as well as the re-branding of the school from the Canadian Automotive Institute to the ABSC, and in forming the Automotive Dealership Management Program.
The Richard C. Gauthier CADA Scholarship will be presented to a student enrolled in the ABSC Bachelor of Business – Automotive Management program. The recipient has had a successful co-op placement in a new car or truck dealership and must be in a position to demonstrate that prior to receiving their scholarship. They have also demonstrated academic merit (70% and above).
You must be a registered Georgian Student to apply. Students will be asked to apply using the new online application system for this award here . Applications open December 15 and close February 15.
