WJA offers ‘Member Grants’

The Women’s Jewelry Association is offering “Member Grants” of $500 to help association members with professional industry-related studies.

“WJA recognizes the importance of professional education for those already in the industry,” said Gilliam Schultz, WJA scholarship committee, in a letter to WJA members. “Everyone benefits from continuous education and deserves the opportunity to receive it. As a believer in CANI—constant and never-ending improvement—it is my privilege to have helped develop this new program and be able to offer it to you now.”

The grants are available to every woman who is a paid-in-full WJA member. They can be used to cover classes and/or materials that include industry-related studies or financial business, marketing and other courses that help make WJA members “better employees, better managers, better business owners in this industry,” says Schultz.

Applications are due by Sept. 30 for the educational opportunities between Aug. 1, 2002 and July 31, 2003.
