DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (March 12, 2014) — The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) is offering students a scholarship covering one year’s tuition to Ohio Technical College (OTC) as part of its Memorial Scholarship Fund.
SEMA said the tuition, valued at up to $29,400, encourages and supports those pursuing careers in the automotive aftermarket. Covering all aspects of vehicle customization, the association offers scholarships to students who are interested in the industry, whether it is working hands-on with vehicles or in an office job such as business management, sales, marketing, journalism, IT or international relations.
“Students coming through the SEMA Scholarship Program have demonstrated great potential and share the enthusiasm and passion that has fueled our industry,” said Zane Clark, SEMA education director.
“Our hope is that we’ll continue to attract highly qualified students who will contribute and make strong, positive impacts in our industry.”
The application deadline is March 28. For additional details, visit SEMA’s website.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
