University Of The Aftermarket Foundation Funds Grant For APSA Scholarship Program

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation has approved a grant for the Automotive Parts & Services Association (APSA) annual scholarship program awarded through the G.C. Morris/Paul Rupp Memorial Educational Trust and the Gayle McCartney Memorial Educational Trust.

The mission of the APSA program is to encourage and assist the educational development of qualified students who have a desire to pursue a career in the automotive aftermarket industry. The fund provides financial assistance for tuition, fees and books beyond the secondary level at any accredited college, university or technical school.

To be eligible, an applicant must be a high school graduate or possess a GED certificate. In addition, a qualified candidate must be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student in a curriculum leading to a degree or certificate from an accredited college, university or technical institute, maintaining satisfactory academic progress. Priority is given to those sponsored by an APSA member in good standing, so applicants may want to contact APSA in order to find a member in their area.

Legal residents of Arkansas or Oklahoma are eligible for the Gayle McCartney Memorial Educational Trust scholarship, while legal residents of Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas or Wyoming are eligible for the G.C. Morris/Paul Rupp Memorial Educational Trust scholarship.

“The University of the Aftermarket Foundation is pleased to partner with APSA to provide deserving students with scholarship opportunities,” said Rusty Bishop, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “Our grant helps APSA award more scholarships. In fact, in the past 10 years, APSA has awarded over 100 scholarships and at least half of those students received additional financial support from the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.”
