Garage Gurus Sets New Deadline for Automotive Technician Scholarship Program

Garage Gurus LogoGarage Gurus, a training and support platform from DRiV, has announced an extension for submissions for its Garage Gurus Automotive Technician Scholarship Program to May 31, 2020, from the original deadline of April 30, 2020. Applications are still available for the opportunity to receive one of 12 $2,500 Garage Gurus scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year. All materials must now be submitted by May 31, and winners will be announced on or about July 1. Garage Gurus will award up to $30,000 in scholarships to future automotive technicians who are accepted or currently enrolled in accredited, U.S.-based automotive technical schools, colleges, and universities, or enrolled full-time at a U.S. high school.

In addition to the application, students are also required to submit 2 letters of recommendation from non-family members as well as a typed essay or video indicating “Why I Want to Be a Top Technician.” All applications and related materials will be reviewed by Garage Gurus’ team of ASE Master-certified technicians and other team members.

“For us, everything begins with the service technician, so we remain committed to help provide them with the skills, training and knowledge they need to ensure quality repairs,” said Dennis Sheran, director, channel engagement, DRiV. “Given the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent shutdown of high schools, colleges and other learning institutions, we thought that it was important to extend the deadline for submissions another month so that students have the chance and resources to fully complete their applications.”

Offering onsite, online and on-demand instruction, Garage Gurus is a first-of-its-kind national training platform designed to help front-line automotive service professionals keep pace with the latest vehicle technologies. State-of-the-art Garage Gurus technical education centers are operational in 12 U.S. markets – Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Dallas/Fort Worth; Houston; New Hyde Park, N.Y.; Rancho Dominguez, Calif.; South Florida; St. Louis; Suburban Detroit; and Van Nuys, Calif.
