Each year, the NIADA Foundation sponsors a student who has displayed outstanding abilities in education from each of the association’s four regions across the nation with a $3,500 scholarship to the college or university of his or her choice, thanks to the assistance of AutoTrader.com.

The foundation and AutoTrader.com also award a $10,000 national scholarship each year for an outstanding student to attend or continue his or her education at Northwood University in an automotive-related field.

All students’ entries are judged by Northwood University.
