FMI awards first bursary

Andrew Gault receives his Outstanding Achievers Award from HRH Prince Michael of Kent (GCVO) and the bursary certificate from Brian Childs, the Fellowship’s vice chairman

The Fellowship of the Motor Industry (FMI) has awarded its first bursary to Andrew Gault, a body repair technician from Northern Ireland. In winning the Institute of the Motor Industry’s 2016 Outstanding Technical Achievement Award, Gault becomes the first recipient of a bursary scheme launched this year by the FMI to help students and apprentices in the motor industry through their studies.

The IMI Outstanding Achiever Awards were presented at a reception at the Institute’s Fanshaw headquarters on 20 October by HRH Prince Michael of Kent (GCVO). A total of eight awards were made to students and two to training centres.

Gault works for Glen Allen Body Repairs in Cookstown, Northern Ireland. The FMI bursary forms part of a sponsorship package with the IMI to support students with the cost of training, books and other learning materials and expenses incurred in their studies.

The initiative marks a first for the Fellowship, which has organized social events to keep senior motor industry professionals in touch with the industry and each other for more than 80 years.
