The grants provide funds for equipment, tools and program development needed by each school. Among the grants, Des Moines Area Community College received $2,000 to purchase promotional products for potential students. “The foundation is pleased to support the auto programs at Iowa’s community colleges,” said Mary Cason, executive vice president of the Iowa Automobile Dealers Foundation for Education. “The grant money will purchase equipment and training that will enhance students’ learning experience and prepare them for the work atmosphere at a dealership.” To see a list of the grants, click here.
