The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) awarded 378 scholarships totaling $640,250 to students around the country

Students must attend a two- or four-year college or university or an accredited automotive vocational program. Most of the students are studying to become mechanical, collision or heavy-duty repair professionals, UAF says. Some are pursuing degrees in business, engineering or IT fields that will lead to a career in the automotive aftermarket.

"It's wonderful to see so many students looking to the aftermarket as a career path and applying for scholarships to help get them there," says Mike Buzzard, AAP, chairman of the  UAF scholarship committee. "Awarding so many scholarships would not be possible without the generosity of those who donate their time and resources to UAF. Their support helps ensure that the aftermarket remains vibrant and strong through education."
