The scholarship is available to female students who have completed at least one year in an ASE-certified, post-secondary automobile technology program and plan on entering the automotive field upon graduation.

“We are very pleased to sponsor one of the Women’s Board scholarships,” said Kevin Burton, director of product development for Four Seasons, Inc. “The automotive aftermarket has traditionally been thought of as a male dominated industry, but there are a lot of great opportunities for women. This type of program is long overdue. We fully support the Women’s Board in their efforts to recruit and retain talented women to the automotive aftermarket.”
