Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Minnesota Scholarship

Scholarships are available to students entering their first or second year of a post-secondary ASE Education Foundation accredited automotive service or collision repair program in Minnesota.  Applications are reviewed by a committee of industry representatives, with consideration given to scholastic achievement, education and career goals, financial need and written recommendations.

  • Scholarship awards will be in the amount of $1,000, and can be applied toward tuition or tool purchases.
  • To be eligible for scholarships, applicants must be in good standing in their program, making satisfactory progress, and attending regularly.
  • College students: Must submit an instructor verification form and at least one reference letter from someone other than the person who completed the instructor verification form. You may scan these documents and attach to your scholarship application or fax or mail to the address on the scholarship application.
  • High school students:  If you’re currently enrolled in an automotive class, please submit an instructor verification form.  If not, submit at least one letter of reference.  The reference letter should indicate the writer’s relationship with the student. 
  • AASP-MN will accept the instructor verification form instead of school transcripts. Minnesota students who also want to be considered for awards from UAF, and other organizations should also submit their high school and post secondary school transcripts.
