Scholarship Applications Due March 1

SEMA is now accepting applications for awards from the 2018 SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund for students preparing for careers in the auto or auto-parts industries. New this year, high-school and part-time students can apply for scholarships. The change is part of an effort by SEMA’s Scholarship Committee to start students down the automotive path and support their efforts at an earlier stage.
