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