The school is the last expenditure upon which America should be willing to economize.

Iowa Automotive Recyclers Educational Scholarships

Each year the Iowa Automotive Recyclers award scholarships Direct member's children and the children of their employees, to assist with the cost of a post secondary education. Students may apply during any year they attend an accredited institution. During this economic recovery, colleges are cutting back on scholarships, grants and other forms of financial aid available to students due to funding cuts to education. That’s why these scholarships are more important than ever.
