AASP-MN Offering $1,000 Scholarships for Post-Secondary Collision and Mechanical Repair Students

Thanks to another successful fundraising drive within the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Minnesota (AASP-MN) membership, the association will be awarding scholarships to select students enrolled in post-secondary automotive (mechanical or collision) programs. This year, the scholarship award has doubled, to $1,000 per student.  

Recipients must be entering the second year of a two-year NATEF-certified automotive program in the fall of 2010. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of industry representatives, with consideration given to scholastic achievement, education and career goals, financial need and written recommendations. Applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, Feb. 26.

AASP-MN is an association of independently-owned automotive service businesses and industry suppliers dedicated to improving the state’s automotive service industry and the success of its members.  

The Education Fund was established in 2003 to provide financial resources to support automotive students, enhance automotive programs and raise awareness of career opportunities in the independent automotive service industry.  Since that time, over $76,000 has been distributed directly to students enrolled in automotive programs through the Association’s scholarship program, Lights On for Safety event and Skills USA competition.
