The WJA Student Scholarship has given up to $33,000 a year away to student scholarships.  We will have multiple winners in each category.  This year we are very excited to offer The WJA-Gabriel Love Foundation Student Scholarship in partnership with Gabriel & Co.  This $5,000 scholarship has been established to help provide funding for students to achieve professional growth within the fine jewelry industry and in their communities at large. Consideration will be given to students who are able to clearly articulate a desire to participate in charitable efforts in the future or how they will use their career in jewelry to improve communities.  
    
We are awarding scholarships in three different categories: 1. the Designer & Creator Category (based on images of finished pieces that are designed and created by the student), 2. the Designer Category (based on designs designed by the student, includes CAD and drawings, these pieces are not necessarily ever created), and 3. the Non-Designer Category (essay based for those studying to be a gemologist, appraiser, watch-maker, bench jeweler, or retailer).
     Please follow the directions closely for the directions may vary depending on the category that you are applying in.

WJA DESIGNER/CREATOR CATEGORY:
   This category is designed for those students in a studio jewelry program who can apply with finished pieces that they designed and created themselves.
