Universal Technical Institute And Feld Motorsports Announce The Grave Digger® Scholarship

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Universal Technical Institute (NYSE: UTI), the leading provider of post-secondary education for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians, is continuing its long-standing relationship with Feld Motorsports, producers of Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam ® by offering the 2013 UTI/Grave Digger scholarship. Together, UTI and Feld will provide $20,000 in tuition assistance.

"We give students the opportunity to change their lives by providing the necessary training to realize their dreams," said Kim McWaters, chief executive officer, Universal Technical Institute. "This scholarship will help them take the next step towards a career in the automotive industry."

Those interested in attending Universal Technical Institute (UTI) can enter to win a $20,000 scholarship to UTI by submitting a 2-minute video that tells Dennis Anderson—the creator of Grave Digger, the world's best known Monster Jam truck—why he or she deserves the scholarship. Entrants are encouraged to be creative with their videos, whether that's singing a song, performing a comedy sketch or reciting a poem – as long as they include information about themselves, why they should win and what they plan to do with their training after graduation. Videos can be uploaded at http://www.youtube.com/UTIGravedigger until March 8, 2013.

"Technicians have always been essential in my career as the Grave Digger driver," said Dennis Anderson. "I'm looking forward to learning more about the next generation of technicians who may one day be maintaining a show-stopping Monster Jam truck like Grave Digger."

The UTI/Grave Digger scholarship winner will be announced at the Monster Jam World Finals, March 22-23, in Las Vegas.
