Phil Hill Scholarship Recipients at McPherson College
We are pleased to announce that the Pebble Beach Company Foundation is providing three Phil Hill Scholarships to students enrolled in the Automotive Restoration program at McPherson College in McPherson, Kansas, and the first Jules “J.” & Sally Heumann Scholarship this year. McPherson is the only four-year liberal arts college to offer such a program. The Foundation has also supported several McPherson interns, helping to defray living expenses while they gain experience.
ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY
The Academy of Art University has joined with us in honoring Phil Hill by providing several two-year scholarships to its highly regarded industrial design program, led by respected automotive designer Tom Matano. Joining the first fourteen scholarship recipients are the following two recipients for 2019-2020.
Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS)
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance partners with the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS), which brings together researchers, students, industry, government and the community to enable a future of human-centered mobility. The Concours offers student leaders in Stanford’s mobility programs the opportunity to see some of the world’s greatest cars and better understand each car’s technology, beauty, history and importance.
In a summer session class, students are given a select list of cars headed to our August show field, and they then research the cars and debate the significance of their innovations. On Concours Sunday, the students come to our show field early in the morning to see the cars in person, and then later present the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS) Award for Automotive Innovation to the car featuring the most significant period innovation.
