It is a charitable organization, begun in 1976, that has “donated hundreds of millions of dollars to deserving charities, educational organizations and disaster relief efforts worldwide,” according to the organization’s website.
The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program is a scholarship which the Foundation offers that helps students who wouldn’t otherwise have the financial means to attend college and obtain a four-year degree. According to guidelines laid out by the Foundation, GM seeks to reward students who’ve attained flying colors both inside and outside the classroom. That means that not only do students have to exhibit good grades, they must also show they’ve participated in extracurricular activities. Speaking to the students directly, Buick said it’s a “reward for what you’ve made of yourself and the difference you are making for others.”
More specifically, the rewards grants 50 first-time freshmen and existing college students $25,000 a year to help them as they pursue auto industry-related degrees. We at Crawford Buick GMC encourage all interested parties to apply here.
