Scholarship Program

The MidAtlantic Regional IADA Scholarship Program

Special Thanks to our Founding Sponsor North East Pennsylvania Auto Auction, and contributing Auctions including America’s Auto Auction Harrisburg and America’s Auto Auction Lancaster.

The MidAtlantic IADA has established a scholarship program to assist member dealership owners’ and their employees’ children, stepchildren, and grandchildren who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. 

Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals.

Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin.


Applicants to the MidAtlantic IADA Scholarship Program must be

  • Children, stepchildren or grandchildren of owners, officers or employees(employed as of the date of notification) of MidAtlantic IADA member dealerships who are citizens of the United States and who are the following;
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school located in the United States for the entire upcoming academic year.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. Up to three (3) awards will be granted each year, provided there are qualified applicants. Awards will be designated one per region. If a region does not have a qualified applicant, the award will be designated to another region or reserved for the next year.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are not to exceed the cost of tuition, fees, books and supplies. Awards are for undergraduate study only.


Interested students must complete the 2018 application and mail it along with a current, complete transcript of grades to Scholarship America postmarked no later than March 15. Grade reports are not acceptable.


Online transcripts must display student name, school name, grade and credit hours earned for each course, and term in which each course was taken.


Applicants will receive acknowledgment of receipt of their application. If an acknowledgment card is not received within three weeks, applicants may call Scholarship America to verify that the application has been received.


Applicants are responsible for gathering and submitting all necessary information.


Applications are evaluated on the information supplied; therefore, answer all questions as completely as possible. Incomplete applications will not be evaluated.


All information received is considered confidential and is reviewed only by Scholarship America.

Selection Of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal.


Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of MidAtlantic IADA play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.


Scholarship America will process only the first 50 applications received that are postmarked on the application deadline date or earlier.


Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment Of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of MidAtlantic Regional IADA. Payments are made on August 1.


Recipients have no obligation to MidAtlantic Regional IADA. They are, however, required to notify Scholarship America of any changes in address, school enrollment, or other relevant information and to send a complete transcript when requested.
