(PRESS RELEASE) The MJSA Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to advancing professional skills in jewelry making and design, is now accepting scholarship applications from students interesting in pursuing careers in the design, manufacture, and/or repair of jewelry.

Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $2,500 and are open to U.S. students enrolled in a jewelry program (whether through a university or a trade school) who intend to pursue a career in the jewelry industry and can demonstrate financial need. (Students must be U.S. citizens.) Applicants are assessed based on course of study, academics, career plans, recommendations, and industry experience.

The deadline for applications is May 15. To learn more, go to the Scholarships page in the Career Resources section of MJSA.org here.

The MJSA Education Foundation is a subsidiary of MJSA, the U.S. trade alliance dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design. Since 1997, the Foundation has awarded over $230,000 in scholarship support, including a total of $10,000 in funding provided over the past four years by the Providence Jewelers Club (for students attending Rhode Island schools). All the funds are managed by the Rhode Island Foundation on behalf of MJSA and the MJSA Education Foundation.

Applicants may also apply directly to the Rhode Island Foundation through its website, rifoundation.org.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
