APA Establishes Scholarship Opportunities
Aug. 24, 2016—The Automotive Parts Associates (APA) announced Tuesday the launch of its scholarship program for children of APA shareholders and employees in conjunction with the University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF).
Five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded each year.
Eligible students are those who are attending any accredited two- or four-year college, any ASE/NATEF certified post-secondary automotive/heavy duty/collision technician training program, or any licensed and accredited vocational school, as well as graduated high school students heading into any of those post-secondary programs.
“We want to commend APA for establishing scholarships for the children of their shareholders and employees, and thank them for collaborating with us on this effort,” said Pete Kornafel, MAAP, a trustee of the UAF. “Last year more than 50 students received more than one scholarship from one application, so by working together we can ensure that APA applicants receive proper consideration for the APA awards and also other industry scholarship opportunities.”
