The University of the Aftermarket Foundation launched a new Heavy Duty Scholarships Central website focused on heavy duty/diesel industry scholarships.
HeavyDutyScholarships.com is a portal that 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.
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.
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.
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; 12% 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, according to the announcement.
