ASE Education Foundation to Host Free Webinar Discussion on Scholarships

ASE Ed. Foundation Hosts Webinar Discussion on Scholarships

Industry organizations offering scholarships will share details about the funding opportunities available, many of which go unclaimed each year.

The ASE Education Foundation is hosting a free webinar at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Jan. 18 titled, “An Industry Discussion on Scholarships.”

While there is an industry-wide shortage of entry-level techs in the transportation industry, there are great ASE accredited post-secondary programs across the country that can help students learn the trade and start a career. This education is not free, and some people are held back because of the cost. 

The good news is that many organizations in the automotive service industry have stepped up to help with financial support for students and schools, offering thousands of dollars in scholarships, grants and loan forgiveness each year. 

In this free webinar, representatives from the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), Garage Gurus, Harbor Freight Tools for Schools, Noregon, Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), Steve Johnson Racing and the University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) Scholarship Central will share details about the funding opportunities available, many of which go unclaimed each year. 

The ASE Education Foundation is dedicated to solving the technician shortage through its network of ASE accredited schools and industry partners. The Foundation strongly encourages parents, businesses and instructors to not only join this webinar but share the webinar link with promising tech students.

After registering for the webinar, a confirmation email will be sent containing information about joining the webinar. Those who register in advance but miss the live webinar may view a recorded session.
