Applications Being Accepted At AutomotiveScholarships.com

Applications are being accepted at AutomotiveScholarships.com for the 2014 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) scholarships, University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) scholarships and more. By completing a single online application at the scholarship website, students will be considered for GAAS and UAF scholarships, as well as scholarships from a number of industry partners. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2014.

Scholarships are available to students in two-year technical college programs and vocational schools and four-year college programs. To receive a GAAS or UAF scholarship, applicants must be enrolled full-time in a college-level program or an ASE/NATEF-certified automotive technical program. Graduate programs and part-time undergraduate programs do not qualify.

The GAAS scholarship is unique in that technician recipients can receive two financial grants: one while in school to assist with tuition and an equivalent grant awarded to scholarship recipients who graduate from their program and show proof of post-graduation employment as a technician in the automotive aftermarket for at least six months.

Last time around, 225 scholarships were awarded. Individual scholarships ranged from $250 to $2,500.
