By Staff Writer January 24, 2023

Northwood University has received a $100,000 gift from CDK Global, an automotive retail software provider, to fund scholarships for students enrolled in the university’s Automotive Marketing and Management Program.

“Northwood is proud to have a partner like CDK Global, which helps auto dealers and manufacturers better operate their business,” stated Murray Kyte, vice president of advancement for Northwood University. “We are grateful for CDK’s leadership and generosity to help foster the next generation of automotive leaders through their educational support of students studying automotive marketing and management.”

This fall, four $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to incoming freshman and sophomore students enrolled in Northwood’s Automotive Marketing and Management program. Six $5,000 scholarships will be given to upper-class students enrolled in that same program. 

Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on financial need. Each recipient must be a U.S. citizen who is enrolled at Northwood for the upcoming academic year. All scholarships are one-time awards.

An additional $10,000 will be awarded to one high school senior attending Northwood University’s Full Tank Automotive Camp this summer. The student must be enrolled in Northwood’s Automotive Marketing and Management program for fall 2023. 

“It’s an opportune time to announce CDK’s generous scholarship donation at the same time we have announced the creation of Full Tank Automotive camp,” stated Elgie Bright, who chairs Northwood’s Automotive Marketing and Management program. “This will be a tremendous opportunity for a high school senior who participates in this summer’s camp and attends Northwood in the fall.”
