July 24, 2009 – A Canadian is among the 24 recipient who received a portion of the American Rental Association (ARA) Foundation Scholarship Awards.

Shannon Penfound, the daughter of Mark and Brenda Penfound who own Par-Tee Rentals in Petrolia, Ontario, will receive $2000 as part of the undergraduate scholarship fund.
After receiving a record 86 applications, the ARA Foundation Scholarship Committee selected 24 students for $41,000 in scholarships for the upcoming academic year. All the recipients are planning future careers in the equipment rental industry. The scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 each, are being awarded to students attending technical/vocational schools, community colleges, undergraduate colleges and graduate schools.

The Foundation board of trustees and scholarship committee awarded several additional undergraduate and graduate scholarships this year, since the quality of applicants was high and additional funds were available from the 2008 and 2009 auctions benefiting the Foundation during The Rental Show.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, leadership, rental industry involvement, written essays on rental-related questions and references. Applicants must be associated with the rental industry as an owner, manager or employee of a rental operation or manufacturer/supplier of rental equipment, or their family members.
