“The new Federated scholarships commemorate the legacy of Art Fisher, an industry icon with an unparalleled commitment to education,” said Tim Lee, MAAP, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “On behalf of everyone at the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, we thank Fisher Auto Parts for its generous contribution. I’m sure Art would be very proud to know these funds will be used to help the sons, daughters and employees of Federated Car Care customers pursue continued education.”

Twelve scholarships, each with a value of $2,500, will be awarded to the employees or children of Federated Car Care Center members. To qualify, applicants must meet the criteria outlined in the Federated section of the foundation’s Automotive Aftermarket Scholarship Central website and must name Federated in the sponsor section of their completed application.
