All U.S. Jewelry Students Eligible for Funding
The MJSA Education Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications from students interested in turning their passion for the design, manufacture, and/or repair of jewelry into careers.
Any student who is a U.S. citizen and enrolled in a jewelry program—whether at a college, a university, or a trade school—can apply for funding, in amounts ranging from $500 to $2,500. Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need, and they'll be assessed based on their course of study, career plans, academics, recommendations, and related experience.
The deadline for applications is May 15. To learn more, go to the Scholarships page in the Career Connections section.
