The $2,500 scholarships, funded by National Pronto Association and its warehouse distributor members, are administered by the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. Eligible students may apply online by visiting automotivescholarships.com and clicking on Pronto. The deadline for applications is March 31.
“We commend National Pronto and its members for making an investment in the future of the employees and children of its Pronto Auto Service members,” said Tim Lee, MAAP, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “On behalf of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, we are proud to partner with Pronto to help make continuing education more accessible and affordable for members of the Pronto family.”
To be eligible, Pronto scholarship applicants must meet the criteria outlined in the Pronto section of the Automotive Aftermarket Scholarship Central website and must name Pronto in the sponsor section of their completed application. Qualified students include those attending a two- or four-year accredited college, an ASE/NATEF certified post-secondary automotive/heavy duty/collision technician training program or any licensed and accredited vocational school. In addition, students graduating from high school in 2017 who will attend one of these post-secondary programs also are eligible.
As an added benefit, all completed scholarship applications submitted by the March 31 deadline will be considered by every organization listed on automotivescholarships.com, where the qualifications are met. Last year, more than 50 students received multiple scholarships from one application.
