The IAD Foundation will award scholarships each spring. Applicants must be committed to pursuing automotive-related studies at a two- or four-year post-secondary institution and must demonstrate satisfactory performance in those studies. Students who have received scholarships come from all over Iowa. Most attend an Iowa community college. Many scholarship winners study to be automotive technicians, while others study collision repair or pursue diesel training. Dollar amounts for the scholarships will vary. Applications run from the winter until the due date.
The Iowa Automobile Dealers Foundation for Education promotes career opportunities in the motor vehicle sales and service industry in Iowa. We invest in the future of the motor vehicle sales and service industry by awarding scholarships to students pursuing careers in the automotive industry. We also develop programs and incentives with high schools, colleges, educational agencies, and the public to encourage the pursuit of automotive careers.
