Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America Education Foundation Jewelry Scholarships and Awards

Website: Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America


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 provide the financial support they need.

The Scholarship Group consists of five permanent endowment funds managed by the Rhode Island Community 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 $2,000 are given every year.

All scholarship applicants also receive a free one-year student membership to MJSA, enabling them to connect with professional expertise and benefit from the guidance of experienced jewelers.


Any student enrolled in a jewelry program, who intends to pursue a career in the jewelry industry and can demonstrate financial need, is eligible to apply. Applicants are assessed on the basis of course of study, academics, career plans, recommendations, and industry experience.

Students must be U.S. citizens.
