Nissan Gives $150K To UTI Foundation

Automaker Marks Fourth Year of Donations, Topping $600K


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nissan Americas has donated another $150,000 to the Universal Technical Institute Foundation.  The donation marks the fourth consecutive year that the automaker's charitable foundation has made a contribution to the UTI Foundation.

It elevates Nissan's total charitable giving to the UTI Foundation to $645,000.

The donation funds the Nissan Automotive Technical Training scholarship, and covers tuition costs for the nine-week program. Each scholarship is worth $5,000. Since introducing the NATT scholarship in 2009, the program has awarded more than 48 grants to deserving students.

"The technicians who work in Nissan and Infiniti dealerships across the country are the face of our company to many of our customers," John Spoon, Nissan vice president of Parts and Service, said.  "Through UTI, we are committed to helping aspiring technicians gain the technical skills they need to deliver best-in-class service and reinforce the trust our customers have in our brands."

The NATT Scholarship Program is available at UTI's NASCAR Tech, Boston, Houston, Orlando and Sacramento campuses. Students who fit the criteria, complete the application and obtain the endorsement of an employer, guidance counselor or instructor are encouraged to apply.  Students must also commit to a term of employment at a Nissan/Infiniti dealership upon graduation, and receive the recommendation of a Nissan or Infiniti dealer upon submitting an application.

"The continued support of Nissan Americas is outstanding and we are most grateful," Veronica Meury, UTI Foundation Vice President and Executive Director, said. "The NATT scholarship program has been a tremendous help to UTI students seeking advanced training and gives students the additional resources to achieve their dream of working for Nissan."

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.
