ARA Foundation and affiliate program scholarship applications are available now for the 2024-2025 academic year. Students pursuing a rental-related career are encouraged to apply here during the holiday break.

The Foundation’s scholarship program goes beyond simply providing critical financial assistance to those looking to further their education. It also is helping to grow the network of women in rental.

Take Kristin Chose of Ideal Crane Rental in Madison, Wis., for instance. Last year, she received a total of $4,000 in scholarships to help her pursue a master’s degree at Harvard University. “The rental industry is an exciting place to be,” she says, adding that her education enables her to “come up with a lot of neat ideas and implement them here at Ideal.”

Watch the video below to see how Chose’s scholarships are preparing her to succeed in the technologically advancing world of equipment rental.
