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 through 2023, over $229,000 has been awarded to 85 students from across the state.
WSADA Bright Future Scholarship
Washington’s franchised new car and truck dealers have worked hard to grow their businesses and are great employers who give back to their communities. Together, they provide over 20,000 people with good, family-wage jobs in 70 communities around the state.
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 franchised new car and truck dealership as you complete your training and educational programs.
The Washington State Auto Dealers Association (WSADA) will award six (6) $3,000 scholarships to individuals currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a Washington State automotive technology program (full list of schools available at www.wsada.org).
In addition, three (3) $3,000 scholarships will also be awarded to Washington State high school seniors who are an employee of a WSADA-member dealership, an immediate family member of a WSADA-member dealership employee or applying to Northwood University’s Automotive Marketing and Management Program.
