CarParts.com Scholarship Program

CarParts.com is dedicated to giving back to the community, creating lasting memories, and nurturing the development of future leaders and innovators. While it’s true that earning a degree helps open up opportunities in life, with increasing education costs and unexpected life expenses, achieving this goal may not always be easy. The CarParts.com Scholarship Program was designed to help give students peace of mind by offering financial assistance for their journey to higher education.

The Program

A car isn’t just a vehicle to get you from point A to B; it’s a vessel that houses many memories and will continue to provide new ones with every ride–from road trips to DIY installs to taking off for college and more! At CarParts.com, we believe that cherishing your car means cherishing your memories, and we’d love to hear yours! That’s why we’re giving away $1,000 to forward-thinking students looking to pursue a career in the automotive industry or related fields. This will be awarded to one student per semester to use towards educational expenses such as tuition, books, lodging, etc.
