SEMA announced it is now accepting applications for the 2020 SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund for students preparing for careers in the automotive aftermarket industry.
The SEMA Memorial Scholarship program offers financial assistance of up to $5,000 to help foster the next generation of automotive aftermarket industry leaders and innovators. Scholarships are available in a variety of categories, including accounting, sales, marketing and engineering.
“Our goal is to encourage, inspire and support the future leaders of the automotive aftermarket industry,” said Juliet Marshall, manager of student programs for SEMA. “By providing financial support to promising students, we can successfully open doors of opportunity to those working towards a career in our field.”
The program also grants loan forgiveness awards for employees of SEMA-member companies who have completed a program of study at an accredited university, college or vocational/technical program within the U.S.
