“We thank our partners at International Truck and IC Bus for their continued support of the ASE Education Foundation and awarding these incredible training opportunities,” said Mike Coley, president of the ASE Education Foundation. “Our industry partners continue to provide outstanding learning and training opportunities for students and instructors at ASE-accredited programs. These Navistar scholarships are a prime example of the support received from the industry.”

To be eligible for the scholarships, instructors had to be nominated by their supervisors and submit an application, explaining how their program and students would benefit and why they should be selected.
