Each year CIADA has the opportunity to award a scholarship to a student in each state we represent, North and South Carolina. Applicants must be a child, grandchild or spouse of a CIADA Dealer member in good standing. Applicants must be fulltime students enrolling or enrolled in a college, university, business or trade school. They should submit a CIADA application form, along with their appropriate transcript (high school or college), Scholastic Aptitude Test scores or equivalent test scores, information on special interest and activities, and three letters of recommendation.
A selection committee (independent of CIADA and the automotive industry) will advise CIADA of the selection process and the winners will be notified prior to the CIADA convention held each year in August. Scholarship money will be deposited with each winner’s chosen school and may be used for tuition, books, supplies and fees. If a student drops out of school, any unused funds will revert to the CIADA Scholarship Fund.
