Subaru of America, Inc., in partnership with Rainbow PUSH Coalition, announced Nov. 12 a new scholarship program that will champion local students interested in pursuing a future in automotive technology.
Named the Subaru University Scholarship for Automotive Excellence, the scholarship will equip six Camden, NJ, students per year with financial support for an associate degree at Camden County College, as well as internship opportunities designed to kickstart a career in the automotive industry.
“Subaru of America, Inc. is proud to call the City of Camden our home, and launching this scholarship program with our long-term partners at Rainbow PUSH is another opportunity to empower our neighbors and continue our investment in the city,” said Sheila Gallucci-Davis, VP, general counsel, philanthropy and corporate responsibility at Subaru. “We are committed to strengthening our communities by helping to make education as accessible as possible. Providing these six scholarships is one way to honor that commitment in our Camden home and continue our effort to be more than a car company.”
“After several months of brainstorming, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Subaru in the creation of Subaru Scholarship for Automotive Excellence. This socio-economic initiative is a benchmark in the automotive industry,” said the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr., president and founder of Rainbow PUSH. “Subaru is a valued partner who shares our commitment to level the economic and educational playing fields.”
“We’re pleased that Subaru and Rainbow PUSH Coalition have chosen to partner with Camden County College to launch their new automotive training scholarship program. We believe that the program will provide incredible opportunities for the selected scholars and help build the future of the automotive industry,” said Camden County College President Donald Borden.
