GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is offering $1 million in scholarships for aspiring gem and jewelry students and professionals looking to advance their careers with education from GIA in courses related to gemology and jewelry manufacturing arts offered through its campuses, distance education and lab classes. Applications will be accepted through Oct. 15 for all courses, programs and classes starting before Dec. 31, 2021.

The scholarships are available for on-campus and distance education programs, and are open to U.S. and international prospective students. For details on eligibility, how to apply and required documents, visit GIA.edu/gem-education-scholarship-instruction-information.

 “To meet the challenges of the pandemic, we are adapting to provide education that positions students for success within the gem and jewelry industry,” said Duncan Pay, GIA vice president and chief academic officer. “We are proud to offer scholarships to help more people find rewarding careers.”

GIA has awarded more than $14 million in scholarships since 2010, helping more than 3,000 students study at GIA schools around the world and through distance education programs.

The scholarship application period was postponed from its original application period to allow GIA to assess how to effectively deliver programs and courses during the pandemic. For campus closures and updates related to COVID-19, please visit GIA.edu/campus-openings-coronavirus.
