JA Opens 2023 Scholarship Enrollment May 05, 2023 (0 comments)


New York, NY--Jewelers of America (JA) is accepting enrollments for its scholarship program, which is open to employees of JA Member companies, for industry diploma, professional development and certification programs. JA awards scholarships during the enrollment period from May 3 through August 31.

“One of the pathways to achieving consumer confidence is career development and to enhance the level of professionalism of staff. Education and certifications are an important aspect of career development and through this scholarship program, we strive to make that an affordable option for our JA members,” says JA president & CEO David Bonaparte.

Scholarships can be awarded for programs and certifications from the American Gem Society (AGS), American Society of Appraisers (ASA), Diamond Council of America (DCA), Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA).

Applicants must be an employee at a JA member store for at least one year, they must be at least 18 years of age and they can’t be enrolled in another home study course from any other educational provider. 

To make sure scholarship funds are widely distributed among members, scholarships will be awarded to only one person per store – a limit of three per membership – during the enrollment period. Scholarships are awarded based on the availability of funds.
