About the Scholarship Foundation

The California New Car Dealers Association Scholarship Foundation was established by the California New Car Dealers Association (CNCDA) in 1993 with a vision to support students interested in careers in the automotive industry.

Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to 1,326 students – totaling $1,091,437- encouraging a skilled 21st-century workforce to support California’s new car dealerships.

Together, the California New Car Dealers Association (CNCDA), and its Scholarship Foundation have a rich history of supporting students interested in careers in the automotive industry. The Association works to support our dealers’ needs and the communities they serve while the Foundation continually focuses on bringing outstanding people into the industry.

The Scholarship Foundation is funded by generous donations from The California New Car Dealers Association, Dealers, Manufacturers and friends of the industry.
