Model Coverall Service, Inc. and the Subar Family have been longtime supporters of the West Michigan community. Max and Marie Subar, who founded Model in 1923, and Jerry and Judy Subar, who helped the company flourish, were and are very generous people who always remembered their roots and chose to help others in many, many ways. The Subar family has always believed in the power of an education. Max, who only had an 8th-grade education, and was born in Eastern Europe, emphasized education with his children— all three graduated from the University of Michigan….and all 10 of their children also graduated, from Michigan and from two Ivy League schools. In return, the Subar family is a strong supporter of education. Model and the Jerome P. Subar Foundation support about a dozen universities in Michigan and elsewhere. One way we support the local community that has supported us for 93 years is by funding scholarships at local universities.
GRAND VALLEY STATE UNIVERSITY

If you want to apply for this scholarship, go to this link. The scholarship provides up to $750 per academic year for a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student. Entering freshman or transfer students must have high school or college cumulative GPA of 3.1 and an ACT composite of 20. Model Coverall Service employees who have been with the company for a minimum of 3 years, or dependent children of such persons will be given preference, but everyone will be considered. The student must demonstrate financial need by filing the FAFSA form.
Model, through Jerry and Judy Subar, also support scholarship funds at Davenport University. Go to www.davenport.edu/scholarships to learn more and apply.
Thanks to Max and Marie Subar who started the proud tradition of giving back to our community.
