UAF Awards 461 Scholarships For 2022-‘23 School Year

A record-setting $731,350 in scholarships was provided for the upcoming school year.

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has awarded 461 scholarships to students throughout the country, totaling a record-setting $731,350 for the upcoming school year.

The scholarship recipients will be attending a two-year or four-year college or university or an accredited automotive vocational program. While the majority of the 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. In addition, many named scholarships were awarded on behalf of a variety of individuals and organizations. 

“We are very proud of the growth of the UAF scholarship program,” said Bob Egan, MAAP, chairman, University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “This year marks the most scholarship funds awarded by UAF and its collaborating partners in the foundation’s history.”

To be considered, scholarship candidates submitted an application at the foundation’s AutomotiveScholarships.com or HeavyDutyScholarships.com websites. Once the teams of volunteer scholarship reviewers evaluated all of the completed applications, recipients and their corresponding schools were notified of the awards. 

A complete list of recipients can be found at AutomotiveScholarships.com/scholarship-alumni.   

“Awarding so many scholarships would not be possible without the generosity of those who donate their time and resources to UAF,” said Egan. “Their support of UAF helps ensure that the aftermarket remains vibrant and strong through education.”
