DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2003)—The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) is seeking applicants for its 2003 scholarship program aimed at students entering careers in the automotive aftermarket.
The Diamond Bar-based association will select recipients in colleges, universities and vocational technical schools this summer. The scholarship provision also helps fund education for children of SEMA-member company employees and employees of SEMA members.

The application deadline for the program is May 30. The scholarships are divided into those for students in a four-year or graduate program in junior or senior standing and students in two-year or vocational schools in sophomore standing.
