Auto Detailing Scholarship

  • Why are you raising money for student scholarships in the Auto Detailing Program?
    Students in Continuing Education cannot finance their education through financial aid. Federal Student Aid (FASFA), PELL Grants, and scholarships through the Financial Aid Office are not available to Continuing Education Students. The only way to help these students financially is through specialized grants or scholarships setup for that purpose only.
  • How does the Auto & Bike Show contribute to financial aid for our students?
    The Wake Tech Auto & Bike Show gives the Automotive Detailing Program an opportunity to help students learn a “trade” that can be used almost immediately for employment. The show also allows other Wake Tech programs to raise scholarship funds. This year, Wake Tech’s Culinary Arts and Male Mentoring programs are participating.
  • What is the difference between Continuing Education and Curriculum?
    Continuing Education programs offer many pathways for training. They are flexible, offering single courses as well as a series of courses that offer students a certificate of completion leading to a recognized credential (licenses, certification, renewal or registry listing). These training opportunities are short-term, affordable, and have flexible scheduling.
  • Why do students in Continuing Education programs need financial aid?
    Even though our training courses are quite affordable, many of our students are unemployed or underemployed and need some financial assistance in order to take classes or continue classes. Since grants are program specific, only a small number of students have access to grant money.
  • What else should I know about the importance of Continuing Education?
    More than 800 courses are available through Continuing Education programs, with more than 300 courses leading to a state-regulated or industry-recognized workforce credential. Community colleges represent a second chance at education for many North Carolinians.
