URG SCHOLARSHIP

The URG Scholarship Foundation was founded in 2014, dedicated to those individuals who gave their talent, time and very often their own finances to ensure the growth and success of the automotive recycling industry.

Created by Auto Recyclers for Recyclers, URG remains focused in the areas of education, business acumen, and most importantly, supporting automotive recyclers in their efforts to provide superior service and exceptional products to the repair industry.

Five individual scholarships will be awarded for the Fall 2017 semester; $3,000, $2,500, $2,000, $1,500 and $1,000. Scholarship amounts will be determined upon review of information submitted within the application.
