Ford’s Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center has announced its second year of support for a veteran scholarship program created in collaboration with Disabled American Veterans (DAV), named “Trading One Uniform for Another“. The program provides financial support to five US veterans looking to pursue an education in automotive maintenance and repair, to be used for tuition, books, and fees at an accredited college, university, or trade school. Each scholarship awarded is in the amount of $10,000.
“The entire Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center team, which includes over 800 independent Quick Lane operators, is again proud to demonstrate its support for our nation’s veterans in finding meaningful employment,” says Ford Global Customer Service President Frederiek Toney. “We are honored to stand beside the DAV in awarding these scholarships to our U.S. military veterans, thanking them for their service, and congratulating them on the pursuit of a career in automotive service and maintenance.”
Those who know of a veteran who could benefit from the Trading One Uniform for Another scholarship are invited to nominate someone by going to QLtradingone.com and writing a short essay outlining why the veteran in their life is deserving. Recipients will be selected by Quick Lane and the DAV.
