SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Aug. 27, 2014) — Robert Bosch L.L.C. has established an education scholarship and employment grant program through the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Foundation with a gift of $50,000.
The scholarships will assist students by funding a portion of their technical education at UTI’s Lisle, Ill., campus. Multiple $1,000 scholarships and employment grants will be awarded, the company said.
“Bosch supports high quality, technical education as a key foundation for the next generation of automotive and diesel technicians,” said Odd Joergenrud, regional president North America, automotive aftermarket division, Robert Bosch L.L.C.
To be eligible for the Bosch scholarship, students must meet all UTI admissions requirements, plus the specific Bosch scholarship requirements that can be found at UTI’s website. Not all applicants may be selected to receive a scholarship, the institute said.

The institute offers undergraduate degree, diploma and certificate programs at 11 campuses across the U.S., as well as manufacturer-specific training programs at dedicated training centers.
