Nissan donates $150,000 for technical training scholarships

Nissan’s support of technical education through the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Foundation has provided grants to more than 100 students over the last 5 years. This year’s $150,000 gift brings the auto company’s total charitable giving to the UTI Foundation to $800,000.

Through its donations, the company established the Nissan Automotive Technical Training (NATT) scholarship. Each scholarship is worth $5,000 and covers tuition costs for the 9 week NATT program. Since introducing the NATT scholarship in 2009, the program has awarded 101 grants to deserving students.

UTI is a provider of technical education for individuals pursuing careers as professional automotive, collision repair, diesel, marine or motorcycle technicians. Students who truly understand and exhibit the traits necessary to have a successful career with Nissan/Infiniti dealers are chosen for the NATT program.
