Mechanics often go underappreciated in society despite the vital role they play. 

As a result, many students don’t feel supported to pursue their dreams - especially women, who make up just 3.6% of auto mechanics. Students who have lost one or both parents face even more barriers when pursuing degrees and certifications.

This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Hunter Westphal by supporting a student who has lost a parent or is pursuing an auto/diesel mechanic degree.

Any high school student in Michigan who is pursuing a certificate or degree relating to automotive technology and/or has lost a parent may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how someone you’re not related to has influenced your life.
