In an effort to “boost” the career tracks of students training for careers in the automotive aftermarket and other fields, NAPA Auto Parts stores in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky are teaming up to give away five $1,000 scholarships for area vo-tech schools.
The NAPA Boost Scholarship Program will award scholarships to students who state their case for the scholarships through either a two-page essay or two-minute video.
“It’s important that NAPA store owners do what we can to encourage young men and women to pursue the opportunities available in the automotive technical and repair fields,” said David Cosby owner of the Quality Automotive Distributors, Corp group of NAPA stores in Indiana.
“We know there are individuals out there with the skills and desire who just need the proper training necessary to enter this potentially lucrative field,” added Earl Flack president of the McKay Auto Parts Group of NAPA stores Litchfield, IL.
Students can visit NAPABoost.com to learn more and submit their entries. Entries will be accepted through October 31, 2021. Scholarships will be awarded to the winners in November 2021. Students can use the scholarship towards an automotive, vocational, or any other education of their choice.
