Rees Scholarship Deadline Approaching

I have mentioned the Rees Scholarship in the past. Now is the time to encourage deserving students to apply. Copied below is a letter from Misha Adams of AHRI explaining a bit about the scholarship and how to apply.

Our July 1 fall scholarship deadline is approaching quickly!
The Rees Scholarship Foundation has awarded nearly $335,000 to 195 students enrolled in HVACR programs nationwide since 2003 – and we would like to expand our reach.
The Clifford H. “Ted” Rees, Jr. Scholarship Foundation was established to assist with the recruitment and competency of future HVACR and water heating technicians by awarding up to $2,000 to qualified students enrolled in an accredited school. The Foundation awards motivated students with a genuine interest in the HVACR and water heating field, helping some of the most promising candidates to successfully enter the industry.
This year, the Rees Scholarship Foundation would like to award more scholarships than the 43 scholarships we provided last year, and we need your help.
We truly believe instructors and staff play an essential role in not only educating and motivating students, but assisting them in finding opportunities to help them complete their education successfully. The numbers support this: Over 70 percent of our past applicants learned about Rees from their instructors. With that in mind, we would like to provide you and/or your school’s HVACR department with resources about Rees you can give to your students. These include brochures, flyers, and posters for the classroom. 

Brochures and flyers are also available for download at

Please encourage your students to apply!
Feel free to reach out to me directly as well should you or your students have any additional questions. Also, please feel free to forward this message to your HVAC department colleagues and/or related staff members.
