Apply for Automotive Scholarships by March 31

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation will award more than 400 scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year.

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) reminds students that March 31 is the deadline to submit applications on the Automotive Aftermarket Scholarship Central website at AutomotiveScholarships.com

More than 400 scholarships, including scholarships for IT/cybersecurity fields of study, will be awarded for the 2022-2023 academic year to students enrolled in four-year and two-year colleges as well as ASE/NATEF certified automotive, collision and heavy-duty post-secondary programs. In 2021, 427 scholarships totaling $706,250 were awarded.

The foundation’s AutomotiveScholarshps.com website is a streamlined, mobile-ready portal with easy navigation and a simplified online application process for students interested in careers in the automotive aftermarket. By completing a single application, students will be considered for multiple scholarships for which they are eligible. The website allows applicants to view the details of all scholarships available and continue to update their application until the March 31 deadline. 

“We encourage everyone, including aftermarket industry organizations and individuals, to share the website and deadline with their friends, family and colleagues so interested students are aware and have ample time to apply,” said Bob Egan, MAAP, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. 

A complete list of scholarships offered by UAF and affiliated industry organizations is featured on AutomotiveScholarships.com with links to information outlining each organization’s scholarship details, eligibility requirements and awards. To be considered for as many scholarships as possible, UAF urges applicants to read the individual pages thoroughly to ensure they include the proper information required by each organization on their application.
