Scholarships

Donate & Help Clear the Air

Money garnered from parting out recycled vehicles is put to great use through our student scholarship program. The Foundation grants scholarships to students who are pursuing careers in the automotive field. First priority is given to those students who are currently working at a new car dealership in Colorado. Simply fill out the application by clicking the button below!
