This year the New Hampshire Automotive Education Foundation (NHAEF) was able to award $85,000 to students to pursue a career in the automotive field. The goal is to make this choice accessible and affordable. We look forward to seeing them receive a quality education and transitioning into the automotive industry workforce. You, our partners and members, were part of their step in that direction! Purchases of big raffle or 20 for 20 tickets provide for substantial support of these scholarships.

The NHAEF, in conjunction with the New Hampshire Automobile Dealers Association (NHADA), offered scholarships for New Hampshire high school and college students pursuing an automotive career at any of the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) Automotive Technology Programs offered at: White Mountains Community College, Lakes Region Community College, Manchester Community College, Nashua Community College and Great Bay Community College.

The NHADA Education Foundation works to strengthen the level of automotive technology education in New Hampshire by providing a link between the dealer community and local high school automotive programs. This partnership facilitates scholarship programs, tool and equipment donations, job shadowing, and part-time/full-time work opportunities. We can’t thank you, our members and partners, enough for making sure that tomorrow’s technicians are successful!  We would also like to thank the Exeter Area New Car Dealers for raising $10,000 to help the NHAEF to be able to award $85,000 vs. $75,000 this year!
