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.
