Whether you’re pursuing a career in marketing and sales, accounting, graphic design or any other profession, you may qualify to receive a scholarship of up to $5,000 to help pay for tuition and related expenses. Each year, the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Foundation awards more than 100 students hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarship funds.

Last year, five students received the Top Student Awards, which included a $5,000 scholarship. Ten scholarship winners who were chosen to participate in the SEMA Show Student Experience received a trip to the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, where they gained firsthand experience and made valuable connections with professionals in the industry.
“The SEMA Scholarship Program is unlike any other scholarship program, in that our goal is more than just handing out money to help with expenses—we strive to support students in pursuing careers in the industry,” said Chris Standifer, SEMA project manager, recognition programs. “Scholarship applicants become a part of our network in which we support the future generation.”
Applications for this year’s scholarship program, which are due March 1, are available at www.sema.org/scholarships. All students with a passion for automobiles and pursuing a career in the industry are encouraged to apply.
