Garage Gurus will award up to $30,000 in scholarships to future automotive technicians who are accepted or currently enrolled at accredited, U.S.-based automotive technical schools, colleges and universities, or enrolled full-time at a U.S. high school.  This is the fifth consecutive year for the program, part of a comprehensive “Tech First” initiative, including the nationwide Garage Gurus network of technical education centers.

Applications are now open to apply for one of 12 $2,500 Garage Gurus Automotive Technician Scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year. All materials must be submitted by April 29, 2019, and winners will be announced on or about May 17, 2019.

In addition to the application, students are also required to submit two letters of recommendation from non-family members as well as a typed essay or video indicating “Why I Want to Be a Top Technician.” All applications and related materials will be reviewed by Garage Gurus’ team of ASE Master-certified technicians and other employees.

“Through this program, we remain very committed to fostering the education of current and future technicians to perfect their skills and training, as well as to aid in addressing technician shortages throughout our industry,” said Brent Berman, director of training and consumer experience, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.  “We have continued to support local vocational and technical school students, and, along with our own Garage Gurus’ technical education centers, current technicians who want to be better-equipped to meet the challenges of working on today’s complicated vehicle systems.”
