Jewelers of America and Stuller have teamed up to underwrite JA Bench Jeweler Certification scholarships for 2003-2004. Under the scholarship program, bench jewelers who sign up for any level in JA’s Bench Jeweler Certification program between March 1 and May 1 and complete work by Feb. 28, 2004, will receive a 25% reimbursement of their testing fees. Scholarships are for new enrollees only and cannot be used by currently enrolled candidates or combined with any previous scholarships.
