MJSA Education Foundation Scholarship

Every year, talented students from across the United States look to MJSA for help in realizing a shared dream: to have a successful career in designing and making jewelry. And thanks to the MJSA Education Foundation Scholarship Group, the association can help provide the some of the financial support they need.

The Scholarship Group consists of five permanent endowment funds managed by the Rhode Island Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the Foundation. Money generated by these funds provides support to U.S. students enrolled in jewelry design, jewelry making, or other jewelry-related degree programs at colleges, universities, and technical schools. Several awards of $500 to $3,000 are given every year. Since 1997, the Foundation has awarded over $230,000 to students interested in pursuing professional careers.

In addition to MJSA’s annual scholarships, students enrolled in jewelry design, jewelry making, or other jewelry-related degree programs at colleges, universities, and technical schools in the state of Rhode Island are eligible for a special grant, in the amount of $2,500, donated by the Providence Jewelers Club Foundation for the third year in a row.
