The June 15 deadline to apply for the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) program is quickly approaching and this might be your last chance to apply.
The program was launched in 1996 by several US trade associations to raise scholarship money to support deserving secondary students, college, and university students who want to pursue a career in the automotive aftermarket.
The program is funded from the net proceeds of the annual Global Automotive Symposium.
Selected candidates receive a $1,000 (Canadian) scholarship. While all students are encouraged to apply, priority in awarding scholarships will be given to those pursuing a career in the automotive aftermarket. As a bonus, a matching grant is awarded to scholarship recipients who become technicians in the automotive aftermarket. You may claim your matching grant up to one year after graduation.
Please note: Students must be enrolled full-time for the year of the scholarship. For instance, if you apply in 2014, you must be enrolled for the September 2014-2015 academic year.
