The Icahn Automotive Group — parent company to Pep Boys, AAMCO and Precision Tune Auto Care, to name a few — plans to award scholarships for the 2019-’20 school year to qualified students studying to become professional automotive technicians. The scholarships are part of Icahn Automotive’s Race to 2026 initiative that aims to address the industry’s technician shortage.
Icahn Automotive awarded the first scholarship last month to Jonathan Fanstill, a military veteran enrolled in the Universal Technical Institute’s automotive technology program. Twelve additional $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to students enrolled full- or part-time in high school, college, or trade school pursuing an automotive technician degree or certification.
Applications will be accepted through April 30, 2019, with recipients announced in June. For more information, click here.
