Senior Awarded Metals/Jewelry Scholarship
The MJSA (Manufacturing Jewelers & Silversmiths of America) Education Foundation recently awarded $5,400 in scholarships to six students enrolled in degree programs across the U.S. Senior Alexander Walker of Reed City, Michigan, who is completing a BFA in metals and jewelry design, was one of the six recipients. A past MJSA scholarship winner (2010), he is scheduled to graduate in 2013.
Since 1997, the MJSA Education Foundation has awarded nearly $165,000 in scholarships to students enrolled in jewelry design, jewelry making, or other jewelry-related degree programs at colleges, universities, and technical schools throughout the nation. Funds for the scholarships are generated through the MJSA Education Foundation Scholarship Group, which consists of six permanent endowment funds managed by the Rhode Island Community Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the MJSA Education Foundation.
