The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has officially launched a new website in conjunction with Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW). HeavyDutyScholarships.com is focused on heavy duty/diesel industry scholarships.
The Heavy Duty Scholarship Central portal offers scholarships for students studying diesel and commercial heavy duty technology and considering careers in the business of servicing or supplying parts and vehicle maintenance. The easy-to-navigate site features a simplified online application process and allows students to continue to update their applications until the March 31 deadline.
By completing a single application online, students will be considered for multiple scholarships for which they are eligible. A complete list of scholarships offered by UAF and affiliated industry organizations includes links to information outlining each organization’s scholarship details, eligibility requirements and awards. To be considered for as many scholarships as possible, UAF urges applicants to read the individual pages thoroughly to ensure they include the proper information required by each organization on their application.
In 2021, the University of the Aftermarket Foundation awarded 427 scholarships totaling over $706,000 and 12 percent of these recipients are currently studying to become a diesel technician or follow another career path in the heavy duty/commercial vehicle industry. While UAF has always offered scholarship opportunities for heavy duty/diesel students, the new website puts a greater focus on this important segment of the motor vehicle aftermarket.
To receive information about the UAF scholarship program, including updates and reminders, interested parties should text their name and email address to 720-903-2206. Information about the University of the Aftermarket Foundation can be found at UofA-Foundation.org.
Members of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation’s board of trustees will be in attendance at HDAW. For onsite inquiries, contact Danielle Sonnefeld at (404) 955-4681 or [email protected].
