GIA Now Accepting Scholarship Applications for 2023
The application window for the merit-based scholarships will close May 15.
The window is open now through May 15.
These scholarships are for all classes starting July through December 2023. Applications are open to U.S. and International students for on-campus programs, online programs and lab classes.
The form will only be available during the open application period and deadline extensions will not be granted. All applications must be submitted through the GIA online scholarship portal.
Merit-based scholarship awards are competitive and based on the achievements of the applicant, said GIA. The award must be applied to tuition and fees for classes in which the applicant is not yet enrolled.
Applicants are considered for all available scholarships, but recipients are only eligible for one scholarship per year.
The number of scholarships awarded, along with the award amount, will vary by campus location and the number of qualified applicants.
“One of the most important ways we ensure consumer trust and confidence in the gem and jewelry industry is by making our education accessible to students and professionals throughout the supply chain to help them improve their knowledge and skills,” said Duncan Pay, GIA senior vice president of education and chief academic officer.
Needs-based scholarships are available year-round. These awards do not require an application but may require applicants to file a FAFSA and or provide proof of eligibility. All GIA-administered scholarships are available for GIA campuses worldwide.
GIA will accept merit-based scholarship applications for classes starting in 2024 beginning in August 2023.
