It’s scholarship season, and the NHADA Education Foundation is kicking off our 2021 Summer Scholarship Tour. We will go “door to door,” delivering $85,000 in scholarship awards to over 30 recipients. This year, due to fundraising efforts, we awarded each high school and college applicant a $1,500 scholarship, one of our most significant individual awards! This, combined with CCSNH’s gift of a free three-credit course to the graduating class of 2021, will provide these students with a jump-start on their college education.
Scholarships are awarded to students who will attend an Automotive Technology, Diesel/Heavy Equipment, Collision, or Powersports program at one of the following New Hampshire community colleges:
- Great Bay Community College
- Lakes Region Community College
- Manchester Community College
- Nashua Community College
- White Mountains Community College
Each high school student had to provide a letter of recommendation from their automotive instructor and a copy of their transcript, showing an overall 2.5 GPA or higher.
The NHADA Education Foundation recognizes the need for students to pursue viable career options and receive the education and training to make them qualified candidates for the automotive workforce. The demand for technicians is higher than ever, and advances in technology have made the need for education even more valuable. The Foundation’s goal is to make this education accessible and affordable to help grow New Hampshire’s automotive workforce.
Be sure to congratulate our scholarship winners when you see them! They can be found on the next page or on NHADA’s Community Blog, nhada.com/community.
