Robert Bosch LLC has established an education scholarship and employment grant program through the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Foundation with a gift of $50,000. 

Scholarships will assist students by funding a portion of their technical education at Lisle, Ill., campus of UTI. Multiple $1,000 scholarships and employment grants will be awarded.

“Bosch supports high quality, technical education as a key foundation for the next generation of automotive and diesel technicians,” says Odd Joergenrud, regional president North America, automotive aftermarket division.

“UTI is committed to excellence in all of its core programs and provides students with an outstanding education that will equip them for success in the aftermarket. Bosch applauds UTI for setting and maintaining the very highest standards in technical education and is proud to establish this scholarship.”

To be eligible for the Bosch Scholarship, students must meet all UTI admissions requirements, plus the specific Bosch Scholarship requirements that can be found at utifoundation.net/scholarships-and-grants. Not all applicants may be selected to receive a scholarship.
