Massachusetts Automobile Dealers Automotive Technician Scholarship Program


 If you have always been inspired by cars, enjoy the challenge of taking things apart and problem-solving to put them all back together, then you might think about a career as an automotive technician. 

 The Massachusetts Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation offers thousands of dollars to students attending MassBay Community College and other qualified colleges offering a two year, degree-granting automotive program. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity! 


 Students may be: 

  •  Any age. 
  •  Retraining for a career change or recent high school graduate. 
  •  Living or working out-of-state, as long as co-op work is with a dealership or dealer group based in Massachusetts. Please call us to confirm that your co-op dealership qualifies. 
  •  Entering or currently enrolled at an automotive program at one of the qualified colleges. 


 Your training program must: 

  •  Be supported by an auto manufacturer. 
  •  Be taught at an accredited (post-secondary) educational institution. 
  •  Grant a degree. 
  •  Include a co-op component based in Massachusetts.
