Get Them to
the Finish Line!

Help us meet a record-high in scholarship interest.

Young people have a great interest in being collector car technicians.

We just received three times the number of applicants we expected! Here’s where we currently stand:

  • We had planned to award 10 scholarships this season.
  • With so many applications, we have more deserving students.
  • We’d like to increase our awards to 30 scholarships.
  • But, our current funding won’t meet the need.

To do this, we need your help to build a much bigger engine, with a few more cylinders to boot.

Let’s rally to meet the need.

We don’t want to turn these students away. We’re asking you to help turbocharge this cause by making a donation today.

Help us raise $100,000 over the next 60 days to ensure all applicants can have the best chance at a collector car career.

No one gets to the finish line alone.

Make a Big Impact

Over the past two years, we’ve awarded scholarships to a diverse group of talented and deserving students who are pursuing careers as classic car technicians.

The high cost of education and limited access to hands-on training makes it difficult for young car enthusiasts to enter into the auto restoration trades. Together, we can help aspiring technicians overcome these barriers and put them on a career path into the collector car industry.

You can ensure the future of collector cars. 

A lot of the technicians right now are retiring and there’s a lot of knowledge that’s not being passed down. […] The younger generation is the gap that needs to be filled to keep the industry alive and keep these cars on the road.”— Zoe Carmichael, 2022 Piston Scholar
