Are you a student preparing for a career in auto upholstery? Then you’re eligible to apply for an auto upholstery scholarship through SEMA.
The SEMA Memorial Scholarship and Loan Forgiveness Program exist to help students like you.
“Every year SEMA helps students pay for their college tuition and SEMA Members pay off their student loans,” says SEMA. “Students from all academic and technical disciplines that lead to careers in the automotive industry are welcome to apply!”
The SEMA Memorial Scholarship awards scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $3,000. However, a top award of $5,000 goes to the most promising candidate.
Students pursuing a career in auto upholstery are specifically eligible for the Nat Danas Scholarship. He’s the late-founder of the National Association of Auto Trim Shops and Auto Trim and Restyling News.
SEMA is also accepting applications for its Loan Forgiveness Program, which offers financial awards to employees of SEMA-member companies who are paying off a loan for a completed program of study at an accredited university, college or vocational/training program — such as Wyotech or McPherson College.
SEMA has granted more than $2 million in scholarships to students since 1984. How awesome is that?
