ScholarshipStudents preparing for careers in the automotive industry may qualify to receive up to $5,000 toward their college tuition through the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.

A SEMA Scholarship can help you:

The SEMA Scholarship is unique in that it helps students who are pursuing careers in the automotive aftermarket. As a scholarship recipient, you will have the opportunity to attend the SEMA Show, where you can meet and network with professionals in the industry. The contacts you make during the Show are helpful as you continue to pursue a career in the industry.

Focus on your education.   

When you don’t have to worry about high tuition fees, you have more time to focus on your studies and furthering your education. Doing so will make your education and career goals easier to obtain.

Demonstrate accomplishments.

Scholarship winners can promote the accolade on their résumés. The SEMA name recognition helps your résumé stand out, giving you a tremendous advantage against other potential hires.

Reduce college expenses.
