GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is offering $2 million in scholarships for aspiring or current gem and jewelry professionals interested in GIA gemology, jewelry manufacturing arts, distance education courses and lab classes in 2020. The scholarships are available for on-campus and distance education programs, and are open to U.S. and international prospective students. Applications will be accepted Aug. 1 through Sept. 30, 2019. The scholarships are made available by the GIA Endowment Fund and private donors.

Applications for 2020 scholarships are available at GIA.edu/scholarships. For details on eligibility, how to apply and required documents, visit GIA.edu/gem-education-scholarship-instruction-information.

 Gabrielle White, GIA Graduate Jeweler and scholarship recipient, said “The scholarship I received from GIA helped me afford an education that I otherwise would not have financially been able to obtain. The process is definitely worth the education that you will receive.”

 GIA has awarded more than $10 million in scholarships since 2010, helping more than 2,000 students study at GIA schools in Bangkok, Carlsbad, Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, New York, Surat, Taiwan and now Tokyo, as well as through distance education programs.

 “Scholarships are an important part of our mission to ensure the public trust in gems and jewelry, and our goal of educating the next generation of industry professionals,” said Duncan Pay, GIA vice president and chief academic officer. “Through our professional credentials, career services and alumni network, GIA graduates are positioned for success.”
