NIADA FOUNDATION - Scholarships


The NIADA Foundation promotes the academic growth of youth throughout the United States and awards scholarships annually in June at the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association Convention.

The competition for all students is judged by Northwood University who narrows the field of competitors down to four candidates, representing each of NIADA’s four regions and also selects the National scholarship recipient.

The scholarship recipients' achievements, combined with their leadership and community endeavors are sure to make them an asset to any institution of higher learning.
