One of the Canadian winners, Mark Malig.
Three Canadians are among the 25 recipients of 2019 Auto Value scholarships.
The Alliance scholarship program has awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to deserving students since 2001, helping them to continue their education and in doing so, support the next workforce generation.
Among the recipients of a $1000 award were Alexandra Dumont from Providence University College and Theological Seminary in Otterburne, Manitoba, Mark Malig from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Edmonton; and Ashley Peterman of the University of Regina.
“We are proud of the achievements of these students, and we are proud to support them as they further their education,” said J.C. Washbish, vice president of marketing for the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. “These 25 students are members of the Alliance family, and we look forward to seeing what they accomplish in the future.”
In order to be considered, candidates were required to complete a rigorous application process that included essay prompts, short answer questions, letters of recommendation, and more. They also had to be employees and/or family members of employees. Winners were selected through the University of the Aftermarket Foundation by a panel of judges from a competitive pool of applicants.
