Support Our Scholarship Program


    Mission and Vision

    To advance and empower women in the automotive industry.

    Help create and sustain a diverse automotive industry, optimized by empowered women.

    As of the year ending 2018, AWAF has awarded $414,500 in scholarships to 167 women pursuing careers in the automotive and mobility industry.

    We are more than 240 members from all areas of the industry, at all career levels, working to support each other and other women through fundraising for scholarships and opportunities for professional development.

    Proceeds from events, including our flagship annual golf outing, are used to provide scholarships to women who are studying to enter or further their career in the automotive field.

    We welcome new members and sponsors to accelerate our mission and vision! Get to know us through our events:  social and informative functions such as Pumps and Power in the fall, intimate members-only executive fireside chats throughout the year, professional development programs and the annual August golf outing.
