Students who are currently enrolled in programs that could lead to a career in the finishing industry are encouraged to apply for the 2017 Matt Heuertz scholarship offered by the Chemical Coaters Association International. CCAI will accept applications until April 3.

The program seeks to encourage advanced education in finishing technologies. Applications will be reviewed by the national CCAI education committee for the national scholarship program. Applications also will be sent to chapters that provide additional scholarship funding for students in their area. Award amounts vary and are determined by the national office.

Scholarship recipients will receive a free one-year student membership in CCAI in addition to any financial award. Winners will be announced at CCAI’s 2017 Annual Meeting June 18-22 in Santa Ana Pueblo, N.M. Visit for more information.
