APH is proud to announce John Tangen, a member of the Roseau Auto Value team, as one of 25 winners of the Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper 2019 scholarship competition. The students, picked from a pool of applicants from across North America, will be awarded $1,000 each.

“We are proud of John’s achievements, and we are proud to support him as he furthers his education,” said JC Washbish, vice president of marketing for the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. “John and the other scholarship recipients are members of the Alliance family, and we look forward to seeing what they accomplish in the future.”

In order to be considered, candidates were required to complete a rigorous application process that included essay prompts, short answer questions, letters of recommendation, and more. They also had to be employees and/or family members of employees. Winners were selected through the University of the Aftermarket Foundation by a panel of judges from a competitive pool of applicants.

Since the Alliance scholarship program was developed in 2001, it has awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to deserving students. The annual program encourages continuing education within the membership and supports the next workforce generation in achieving their educational goals.
