California Dealerships and the CNCDA Foundation provide scholarships to students who demonstrate outstanding scholastic ability and who are genuinely interested in pursuing studies related to the service of new vehicles. To be eligible for scholarships, applicants must: intend to pursue a career at a California franchised new car dealership; be eligible for employment in California; maintain a grade point average of 2.5; and maintain part-time status of six units each term.
Our foundation was started by the over 1,300 new car and truck dealerships in CA that represent every franchised brand from Acura to Volkswagen. We work hard to connect student techs with excellent career opportunities in California's top dealerships. We award scholarships and connect students with managers at dealerships throughout the state. We are dedicated to creating career pathways for highly skilled automotive service professionals throughout California.
