SEMA just gave away $245,000 in scholarship and loan forgiveness awards through its SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund to help 104 people pursue careers in the automotive industry.
Among the recipients were 87 students who received scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Additionally, 17 people employed by SEMA-member companies were chosen to receive loan forgiveness awards to help them pay off student loans.
“SEMA receives a large number of scholarship applications each year, and the quality of this year’s applicants was truly inspiring and impressive,” said SEMA Manager of Recognition Programs Chris Standifer. “Their passion and innovative mindset were evident in their applications, and it gives us great hope that they will continue to advance the aftermarket industry and make a lasting impact.”
SEMA has granted more than $3 million in scholarships to students since 1984. How awesome is that?
