Why Your Support Matters
"The work we are doing is incredibly important—SEMA scholarships are an investment in our future employees, business owners and lifelong customers—and our success depends on a lot of SEMA members being aware of and engaging with the program and our students. Donations—no matter how small—are welcome. To attract a large base of support we are challenging everyone in the industry to contribute something affordable, just five dollars. That is why we hope you can find $5 for our future."
