Every year, SEMA helps students pay for their college tuition through the SEMA Scholarship Program, and SEMA members pay off their student loans through the SEMA Loan Forgiveness Program. Students from all academic and technical disciplines who lead to careers in the automotive industry are invited to apply for a SEMA scholarship. Similarly, all individuals who work for a SEMA-member company (with more than $2,000 outstanding student loans) are eligible to apply for loan forgiveness. This year, the SEMA Scholarship and Loan Forgiveness applications officially closed March 1, with another great collection of aspiring young automotive professionals.
SEMA believes that it is important to include the automotive aftermarket industry in the application review and selection process to help foster the next generation. Becoming a SEMA scholarship judge is a fantastic volunteer opportunity to give back to the industry and connect to the next generation of up-and-coming automotive talent. The entire evaluation process is online and easy to use, and a variety of time commitment options are available to fit the schedule that works best for you.
Judging will begin April 5, and continue until May 14. To learn more, visit SEMA Scholarship Judge Application, or contact Byron Bergmann, SEMA project manager, member services at 909-378-4859, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
