Aftermarket scholarships announced

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has awarded hundreds of scholarships to students for the upcoming school year.

In all, 378 scholarships totalling $640,250 were given out. A complete list of scholarship recipients can be found at

Scholarships were awarded to those attending a two-year or four-year college or university or an accredited automotive vocational program. While most students are studying to become mechanical, collision or heavy-duty repair professionals, others are pursuing degrees in such fields as business, engineering and IT/cybersecurity that will lead to a career in the automotive aftermarket. Furthermore, many named scholarships were awarded on behalf of a variety of individuals and organizations.

To be considered, scholarship candidates applied at the foundation’s or websites. Once the teams of volunteer scholarship reviewers evaluated completed applications, recipients and their corresponding schools were notified of the awards.

“It’s wonderful to see so many students looking to the aftermarket as a career path and applying for scholarships to help get them there,” said Mike Buzzard, chairman of the UAF scholarship committee. “Awarding so many scholarships would not be possible without the generosity of those who donate their time and resources to UAF. Their support helps ensure that the aftermarket remains vibrant and strong through education.”
