GNYADA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

GNYADA's Annual Charity Golf Outing raises money to support scholarships for students who wish to pursue careers in our industry. 

The funds are distributed among highly deserving automotive technology candidates, through our Center for Automotive Education and Training. The Golf Outing is a yearly sellout event, bringing together all sectors of the industry, for a day of camaraderie, friendly competition, gourmet dining, and exciting prizes.

GNYADA began its scholarship program when it first opened the Center for Automotive Education & Training in 2005. Since then, the Association has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in student grants, to be distributed through the Center.
