About the Aftermarket

You may encourage the sons and daughters of families employed in the automotive aftermarket to apply for a UofAF or other Scholarship.

Priority is given to these categories of applicants:

  • Students planning to become technicians in automotive, collision, heavy duty or agricultural fields.
  • Students planning to work for any automotive aftermarket company.

We encourage you to let everyone in your organization know about this. There are several fliers you can download from the “Resources” page at this site. You may reproduce them for your company.

PLEASE make sure applicants list you and your firm as their sponsor. PLEASE also consider providing a reference letter for each applicant. These will help the applicant!

PLEASE also consider making a contribution to the University of the Aftermarket Scholarship Fund. A survey of past scholarship recipients showed that more than 75% are working in the automotive aftermarket. There is no better way to insure our industry’s future than by helping new people enter the aftermarket, and the UAF scholarships are a proven way to do that.

Contributions should go to the University of the Aftermarket Scholarship Fund, c/o Auto Care Association, 7101 Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 1300, Bethesda, MD 20814, (240) 333-1046,
