PAA Foundation Community Service Scholarship
The focus of the Pennsylvania Automotive Association Foundation is to support and promote the charitable activities of the new car and truck dealers in Pennsylvania. The Foundation will support this charitable mission by awarding scholarships to young people who embody that mission of service to family and community by volunteering their time and talents to their schools, churches and other charitable organizations on an ongoing basis. Applicants should demonstrate involvement through their essays, reference letters and resumes detailing projects and organizations which they support.
The PAAF scholarships are available to children, step-children and grandchildren of Pennsylvania new car and truck dealership personnel, as well as PAA AYES interns or PAA Apprentices currently working in dealerships. Those students who are high school seniors graduating this year or who are currently enrolled as undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
Recipients enrolled in degree programs at community colleges or four-year colleges or universities will be eligible to receive awards up to $5,000 per year, for two years and may reapply for subsequent years.
