Caleb Epp from Henderson and Kevin Phillips from Fremont, Automotive Technology students at the Milford Campus of Southeast Community College, each received $1,000 scholarships from the Nebraska Rod and Custom Association.

Each year the NRCA awards $1,000 scholarships to students studying automotive technology or auto collision repair technology in Nebraska schools. This year the organization awarded seven scholarships.

Qualifying applicants need to be either a second-year student or a 2015 high school graduating senior who will enroll in any of the state’s technical and and/or community colleges in an automotive curriculum. Other requirements include a minimum 2.5 grade-point average, demonstrate the responsibility and willingness to work toward a vocational achievement and enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours.

The selection committee then verifies that applicants meet the minimum requirements, conducts GPA comparisons, observes the neatness and completeness of the application, looks at the applicant’s involvement in community and school activities, their work history, accomplishments and awards, and the quality of a 250-word personal statement.
