ARA FoundationStudents enrolling at trade schools, community colleges, undergraduate colleges and graduate schools for courses that support a career in the equipment and event rental industry can apply for a share of nearly $134,000 in scholarships through the ARA Foundation and its affiliate partners.

Employees in a rental business and/or a manufacturer/supplier operation, immediate family members (spouse, daughter or son) of the rental business owner and American Rental Association (ARA) student members may apply for:

  • ARA Foundation Trade School Scholarships
  • ARA Foundation Undergraduate Scholarships
  • ARA Foundation Graduate Scholarships
  • ARA Foundation ARA Student Member Scholarships
  • Affiliate program scholarships

The scholarship offerings for the 2023-2024 school year include the following, which are unique to ARA Region Eight:

  • ARA of Montana scholarship (one $1,000 scholarship)
  • ARA of Washington scholarship (one $1,000 scholarship)

“Whether it’s a trade school or university at the undergraduate or graduate level, higher education is costly. We’re so pleased to be able to help those who will be critical in carrying our industry forward through this pool of financial assistance. But students cannot receive a scholarship if they don’t apply, so I urge all those eligible who plan to enroll in school next fall to take just a little time to complete the online application form,” says ARA Foundation Board of Trustees member Tony Wright, president, Celebrations! Party Rentals and Tents, Roseville, Calif.

Nearly $134,000 is on the line. Apply here by the March 7 deadline.
