Do you know or employ a student preparing for a career in the automotive industry?
Paying for a high-quality education is a challenge for many, particularly in today’s tough economy.
A student may be eligible to receive a financial award of up to $5,000. Since 1984, the SEMA Memorial Scholarship has awarded more than $1.5 Million in scholarships to more than 600 students who exhibit a passion for cars and trucks.
Scholarship assistance is available for students pursuing automotive industry careers in these areas:
