Brunswick awards scholarships

Brunswick Corporation’s dealer services team, Brunswick Dealer Advantage and the Brunswick Foundation have named the 2018 Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program. Thirty students whose parents are Brunswick dealers in the U.S. and Canada received a one-year $2,000 college scholarship.

“For the past eleven years, the Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program has allowed us to help our dealers, their employees and their families in a very special way,” said Kirsten Schuchardt, director of sales and dealer service for Boating Services Network, in a statement. “Brunswick Corporation remains committed to providing the best dealer support services in the industry and we congratulate all the winners for their hard work and wish them the best of luck for the upcoming school year.”

The scholarship program is available to children of full-time employees at Brunswick marine dealerships. Recipients must be 23 years old or younger and attend an undergraduate college, university or vocational school.

“These scholarships have allowed me to pursue my education without potentially burdening my family with the expenses,” said scholarship winner Michael Zack, whose father, Steve Zack, is a master technician at Basa’s Marine in Bolingbrook, Ill. “As such, I am thankful for being awarded scholarships by the Brunswick Foundation, as they have helped me achieve my goals.”

Brunswick Dealer Advantage and the Brunswick Foundation have awarded more than $600,000 during the past 11 years to more than 300 students from Brunswick marine dealerships in the United States and Canada. This year’s scholarship recipients were chosen by an independent committee of academic professionals from leading Midwest universities.
