Every year, talented students from across the United States who share one dream—to have a successful career in designing and making jewelry—look to MJSA to help them make that dream a reality. And thanks to the MJSA Education Foundation Scholarship Group, the association can help them to do just that. The Scholarship Group consists of five permanent endowment funds managed by the Rhode Island Community Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the Foundation. Money generated by these funds provides support to students enrolled in jewelry design, jewelry making, or other jewelry-related degree programs at colleges, universities, and technical schools throughout the United States. Several awards of $500 to $2,000 are given every year.
A-ny student enrolled in a jewelry program, who intends to pursue a career in the jewelry industry and can demonstrate financial need, is eligible to apply. – Applicants are assessed on the basis of course of study, academics, career plans, recommendations, and industry experience. -Students must be U.S. citizens.
