Leadership Development Network (LDN) Scholarships


The Leadership Development Network (LDN) consists of individuals helping junior- to mid-level aftermarket professionals grow professionally through networking, educational and philanthropic endeavors. LDN is a standing committee of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA).

LDN holds a “Fun Walk & Run” each spring to raise money for these scholarships. Generous support from companies in the aftermarket industry allows LDN the ability to continue the tradition of encouraging individuals, through education, to enter and stay in the automotive aftermarket industry.

To be eligible for this scholarship, an applicant must:

  • Already be enrolled in a four-year college-level aftermarket program. Priority is given to students who wish to pursue a professional career in the automotive aftermarket industry.
  • Have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher.
  • Provide work experience/extracurricular activities related to the aftermarket field.

* Graduate programs and undergraduate part-time programs do not qualify.

In 2011, LDN awarded three (3) $1,000 scholarships. Visit LDN for more information on LDN, and a list of companies that donated money for these scholarships.
