AIA Canada supports SEMA automotive scholarships

Ottawa, Ontario – The Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA) has announced that it is partnering with the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) to extend that association’s automotive scholarship program to Canadians.

Established in 1984, the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund has supplied more than US$500,000 in scholarship awards to students engaged in studies leading to a career in the automotive specialty equipment industry or a related field. Students attending a college, vocational or technical school receive US$1,000, while university graduates and undergraduates with at least a first-year standing in a four-year program receive US$2,000 to US$3,000.

With the AIA partnership, Canadian students can apply through www.aiacanada.com and submit the application to the AIA Canada office. AIA will conduct a preliminary assessment of applicants and forward qualified candidates to SEMA for final judging. The deadline for submissions is April 28, 2006.
