In July 2009, the NCRS Foundation Board of Directors voted to begin awarding scholarships for the 2009-2010 academic year. It was agreed that four $1,000 General Scholarships would be awarded to eligible recipients. In addition the Board established the Marvin Burnett Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,500 to be awarded to a recipient who is pursuing a degree in education.
As we have continued to grow the Foundation, the number of scholarships has continued to grow as well going from 4 to 6 to 8 to 10 to 12 General Scholarships in addition to the Marvin Burnett Memorial Scholarship. In the 2012-2013 academic year the Board requested that the two additional General Scholarships be awarded to individuals who were pursuing careers in the automotive industry when there were eligible applicants. In 2014 the Nebraska chapter established the Terrance Breher Memorial Scholarship. In 2016 the NCRS Board of Directors established the Donald Majestic Memorial General Scholarship. In 2017 the NCRS Foundation Board of Directors established the Gilbert Scrivner Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,500 to be awarded to the overall top Student.
