For Students

The IAD Foundation will award scholarships each spring. Applicants must be committed to pursuing automotive-related studies at a two- or four-year post-secondary institution and must demonstrate satisfactory performance in those studies.

In addition to general scholarships, named scholarships are awarded each year to students who meet specific requirements. Learn more about the named scholarships.


Applications were due at IADA headquarters by 5 p.m. on March 1, 2021.

Scholarship Recipients

The students who have received scholarships come from all over Iowa. Most attend an Iowa community college. Many scholarship winners study to be automotive technicians, while others study collision repair or pursue diesel training.
