Apply for an MJSA Education Foundation "Future of Jewelry Making" Scholarship . . .

March 27, 2024—The MJSA Education Foundation is now accepting applications for its annual "Future of Jewelry Making" scholarships. Ranging from $500 to $2,500, the scholarships are available to students who are enrolled in a jewelry program and want to turn their passion for the design, manufacture, and/or repair of jewelry into careers.

Applicants will be assessed based on their course of study, career plans, academics, recommendations, and financial need. All students must be U.S. citizens, although those studying in programs abroad are eligible.

Every applicant will receive a complimentary one-year student membership to Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA), the 121-year-old trade alliance dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design. Through MJSA, students can connect with and benefit from the guidance of professional jewelers.

The deadline for applications is May 13. To learn more, go to MJSA.info/scholarships.

Since 1997, the MJSA Education Foundation has awarded over $250,000 in scholarship support, including a total of $12,500 in funding provided over the past several years by the Providence Jewelers Club. All the funds are managed by the Rhode Island Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the MJSA Education Foundation. Click here to see the winners of the 2023 scholarships.
