The deadline for receipt of the application is May 2.

“WJA is committed to encouraging talented students and helping their studies in fine jewelry and watch design,” said Gillian Schultz, WJA’s Scholarship Chair. To enroll, a candidate must submit the following:

* WJA Scholarship Application form (which can be found on the WJA Web site).
* A short essay
* Three (3) slides of recent work
* Two (2) written references
* A self-addressed protective envelope with correct postage for return of slides

All applications should be mailed to Women’s Jewelry Association, Inc., Scholarship Committee, 373 Route 46 West, Building E, Suite 215, Fairfield, NJ 07004

Scholarships recipients will be selected by a panel of judges from the jewelry industry. Scholarships will be announced by July 2005.
