2009 SEMA Scholarship Applications Now Available

SEMA's scholarship program is open to trade, vocational, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as working professionals.

DIAMOND BAR, CA – Full-time students in the U.S. and Canada pursuing careers in the automotive industry may be eligible for financial assistance through the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund (SMSF).

Over the past two decades, SEMA scholarships have supported more than 700 students with more than $1,000,000 in scholarship awards. The program rewards the best and brightest students engaged in studies leading to careers in the automotive aftermarket or related fields.

The application deadline for the upcoming year is April 1, 2009. SEMA will offer four-year, two-year, graduate, loan forgiveness and member/dependent scholarships.

In order to apply for the 2009 program, applicants must visit www.SEMA.org/scholarships to access the new online application.

As in past years, the applicant must provide complete contact information, education history and work history. Scholarships will be awarded based on the selections of SEMA judges and the scholarship.

To qualify, the applicant must have a 2.5 minimum GPA, 25 minimum credits for two-year scholarships, 50 minimum credits for four-year awards, proof that the student is in an automotive field of study and a completed application.

The applicant will also need to supply SEMA with two letters of recommendation, an essay and current official transcripts, which must be faxed separately. Working for a member company or being a dependent of an employee of a member company significantly enhances the applicant’s chances.

Details and applications are available at www.sema.org/scholarships and due by April 1, 2009.
