Learn About Automotive Scholarship Opportunities Via Text

Posted on January 10, 2019

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) is alerting interested students to scholarship opportunities via a new text messaging program. The UAF is accepting scholarship applications now.

The text alert program is for students, parents and instructors who would like to learn about automotive scholarship opportunities. Interested parties who text in their name and email address to 720-903-2206 will receive an instant response providing introductory details about the UAF scholarship program.

“By making this new text alert program available, students can quickly show their interest in the many scholarship opportunities made available from the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and its donor partners,” says Danielle Sonnefeld, co-chair of the UAF Scholarship Committee. “We will be awarding hundreds of scholarships for the upcoming school year, and this new text program will help prospective candidates stay on track to submit their applications by the March 31 deadline.”

Scholarship applications are now being accepted at the Automotive Aftermarket Scholarship Central website (www.automotivescholarships.com) for the 2019-20 academic year.

Students attending a two-year or four-year college or university or a post-secondary vocational program, as well as high school seniors planning to attend college or vocational school, are welcome to apply. Applications will be accepted through March 31, 2019.

“To sign up to receive text information and reminders about available automotive scholarships, just text your name and email address to 720-903-2206. It’s that easy,” says Sonnefeld. “You’ll receive a text reply and an email right away, directing you to the Automotive Aftermarket Scholarships Central website, plus periodic follow-up reminders about available scholarships and the application deadline.”

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
