Larry McCurdy Memorial Scholarship

The Larry W. McCurdy Memorial Scholarship Fund was created to  honor the distinguished career and contributions that Mr. McCurdy made to the aftermarket industry. Because Larry was such an advocate for knowledge, professionalism and integrity, we believe this memorial fund is fitting recognition of his life and career. 
Among his many accomplishments as a leader in the aftermarket were chairman of the Board of MEMA and recognition by the University of the Aftermarket as “Leader of the Year”.

In 2024, three $2,500 Scholarships will be awarded.

To be eligible for consideration for this scholarship award an applicant should be:·       

  • Enrolled in a full-time, 4 year college-level program such as  engineering, marketing or business.
  • Graduate programs do not qualify.
  • Planning a career in the Automotive Aftermarket
Applications approved by the Aftermarket symposium are submitted to the University of the Aftermarket Trustees for final approval.
