The Arthur Paulin Automotive Scholarship Award is now accepting applications from individuals furthering their post-secondary education in an automotive field.
Administered by the AIA High Fives for Kids Foundation, the scholarship is named after long time AIA volunteer Arthur Paulin.
Arthur served as President of H. Paulin and Company Limited for over 35 years and he became Chairman of the Board in 1990. Arthur never lost his passion for developing new products, new packaging, and new and better catalogues.
He was a teacher and mentor to all who knew him. Mr. Paulin served on the AIA Board of Directors for more than nine years, and he served as President of AIA from 1965 to 1966, and then again from 1967 to 1968.
Arthur was a strong supporter of education, and AIA believes that he would be pleased to know that through this scholarship he is assisting future members of the automotive industry.
Selected candidates receive a $700 award.
Deadline is November 30 of each year.
