Since 1997, the MJSA Education Foundation has awarded more than $230,000 in scholarships to help the next generation of jewelry professionals. Winners have gone on to a variety of careers—bench jeweler, entrepreneur, studio artist, educator—and all have enriched the industry and craft of jewelry making and design. In 2019, MJSA awarded $10,000 in scholarships to ensure this pipeline of “new blood” continues. In 2020, we want to double that amount—and you can help.
By donating to the MJSA Scholarship Challenge, you can support the next generation of jewelry makers and designers who dream of professional careers. Tax-deducible donations can be made in any amount. All will go directly to supporting students who demonstrate the talent and dedication needed to keep professional jewelry making vital, creative, and enduring.
