University of the Aftermarket Foundation Announces Scholarships, 2019 Plans

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has announced 2018 scholarship results as well as new plans for 2019.

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) announced 2018 scholarship results as well as new plans for 2019 during a press conference at AAPEX.

In 2018, the foundation awarded 302 scholarships for a total of $450,100. Fourteen of those scholarships were awarded to veterans. UAF awarded five $5,000 scholarships this year and many more up to $2,500. Christina Schneider, an Automotive Technology student at the College of the Desert in California was awarded the $10,000 Women in Auto Care Scholarship.

Students training to become technicians were awarded the majority of the 2018 UAF scholarships. UAF awarded a total 145 mechanical technician students, 11 collision repair students, and 33 diesel and heavy duty tech students.

In addition to scholarship information, UAF discussed plans for 2019. UAF will introduce a student “prospect” database where teachers and others who visit automotive schools can ask students to “text your name and email address to 720-903-2206” to receive a text reply with a link to the scholarship website. To comply with the new personal data protection regulations in the European Union, UAF is using scholarship applicants’ IP addresses to accept U.S. and Canada users only.

Danielle Sonnefeld will also join Pete Kornafel as a scholarship committee co-chair in 2019 .
