Scholarships are the root of our purpose in Automotive Women’s Alliance Foundation (AWAF). As an active professional foundation dedicated to supporting the advancement of automotive professionals, AWAF strives to motivate current and future students studying an automotive related field.
Scholarships are selected by the Scholarship Committee and awarded quarterly to the women that solicit passion and drive for the automotive industry. It is our hope that with these scholarships, we can lessen the burden on students and allow them to focus on gaining knowledge and development in automotive related fields and thus enhance their potential career path and the future of the industry.
Scholarships are awarded to female, North American citizens, with a passion for a career or advancement in the automotive and its related industries. While AWAF members and family members are encouraged to apply for scholarships, we encourage applicants who are not affiliated with the organization to apply as well. In order to be eligible for a scholarship applicants should be already accepted to or enrolled in an accredited collegiate program, with a 3.0 or higher GPA.

Thank you very much for choosing me as a recipient. I truly appreciate Meritor's sponsorship. I knew I wanted to attend Georgia Tech and your generous contribution to my higher education has helped move this dream to a reality, and I sincerely appreciate your confidence in my potential. Your scholarship will assist me greatly in pursuing my dream of a career in the automotive industry.

Thank you immensely for your financial support. I want you to know that every time I receive an email from AWAF about an event I get all worked up. I wish I lived in Michigan. What you ladies are doing for women in this industry is awesome! I would love to be a part of that some day. I do my best with where I am at now, to spread the word and encourage other young women who are considering a career, or already in a career, in the automotive industry. I completely understand why your foundation does what it does. And from this end of the spectrum I want you all to know .....YES it makes a difference!
Sincerely, Andrea Ealy, August 2016 Scholarship Recipient
