Richard T. Liddicoat Scholarship Campaign Goes Online



The Gemological Institute of America announced Friday that donations are now being accepted for the Richard T. Liddicoat Scholarship Fund.

Donations can now be given online. Anyone can give to the fund, which awards two full annual scholarships, one to an On-Campus student and the other to a Distance Education student enrolled in the GIA Graduate Gemologist diploma program. The recipients will be announced at GIA’s Alumni Dinner Dance and Auction at the Tucson trade shows in February 2010.

More than $100,000 has been raised for the RTL Scholarship Fund since it was established. One hundred percent of the contributions go directly to the fund. Contributors have the option to be recognized on the GIA Web site as an RTL Scholarship Fund donor.
