A new scholarship now exists for CAI students. The award, created by the graduating class of CAI 2011, recognizes class adviser Traci Ayers-Dower, CAI, AARE, of Ayers Auction & Real Estate, Marknet Alliance Member, La Follette, Tenn.
The Traci Ayers-Dower CAI Scholarship is for CAI I students, and it will cover CAI II tuition and lodging. So, while the award will be presented to a CAI I student in early 2012, the scholarship will pay for his or her 2013 education.
The CAI 2011 class is donating the tuition, and Auction Solutions Inc., Omaha, Neb., is donating the room and board. The winner will be notified by Jan. 1, according to Si Harbottle, CAI.
Auctioneers who are interested in the scholarship should submit the following:
- A 500-word essay explaining why they want the scholarship
- One letter of recommendation from another Auctioneer
The deadline to apply for the scholarship is Nov. 30. Ayers-Dower and the 2011 class will decide on the winner in December, Harbottle says.
The essay and letter of recommendation should be sent to this address:
