MJSA Announces Scholarship Opportunities

MJSA is seeking students to apply for the scholarships that it funds through the MJSA Education Foundation Scholarship Group.

The group consists of five permanent endowment funds managed by the Rhode Island Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the MJSA Education Foundation. Money generated by these funds provides support to students enrolled in jewelry design, jewelry making, or other jewelry-related programs and courses at colleges, universities, and technical schools throughout the United States.

Last year, the group awarded nearly $7,000 to six recipients studying at various institutions. Applicants can be enrolled in any kind of jewelry training program, as long as they intend to pursue a career in the jewelry industry, and can demonstrate financial need. The student is assessed on the basis of course of study, academics, career plans, recommendations, and industry experience. All applicants must be U.S. citizens. 

The 2012 scholarship information is now available at mjsa.org/careers_and_education. Because the Rhode Island Foundation administers many scholarship funds, students will need to complete a general registration and application online. The site will list all available scholarships, among them the MJSA opportunities.

For more information, e-mail info@mjsa.org, or call 1-800-444-MJSA (6572).
