WSADA’s dealer members as individuals are very active in supporting education, so it is particularly appropriate and rewarding to help young people realize their academic goals. Since the 2008 inception of the Association’s scholarship program, over $158,000 has been awarded to 61 students from across the state.
WSADA Bright Future Scholarship
Washington’s new car and truck dealers have worked hard to grow their businesses and are great employers who give back to their communities. A career as a dealership employee and/or automotive technician offers a bright future with outstanding opportunities and benefits, and we encourage you to consider employment at a new car and truck dealership as you complete your training and educational programs.
The Washington State Auto Dealers Association will award two (2) $3,000 scholarships to high school students enrolling and four (4) $3,000 scholarships to students currently enrolled in a Washington State automotive technology program.
In addition, three (3) $3,000 scholarships will be awarded to Washington State high school seniors who are an employee of a WSADA-member dealership, or an immediate family member of a WSADA-member dealership employee, or applying to Northwood University’s Automotive Marketing and Management Program.
