Ford Motor Company’s Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center has launched a new scholarship program for US military veterans, called “Trading One Uniform for Another.” The nationwide program will give away $10,000 scholarships to five former service members to pursue certification in the field of automotive mechanics.

Quick Lane’s Trading One Uniform for Another scholarship initiative was developed in collaboration with Disabled American Veterans (DAV) – a charitable organization established to serve disabled military members and their families with assistance and advocacy. Each of the five, $10,000 scholarships to be awarded by Quick Lane can be used on tuition, books, and other fees associated with an accredited automotive maintenance and repair program.

The new Quick Lanes scholarship program is accepting nominations from everyone; you can nominate a veteran yourself by going to the Trading One Uniform for Another website and writing a brief essay about why your nominee deserves a scholarship for an automotive mechanics program.

“Finding meaningful employment is an important task for many service men and women after retiring from active military duty, says Ford Global Customer Service President Frederiek Toney. “The ‘Trading One Uniform For Another’ program is another example of Quick Lane’s commitment to the men and women who served our country.

“We are proud 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.”
