HMAG Educational Scholarship

HMAG Educational Scholarship

The HMAG Educational Scholarship will award $500 annually to one Texas or Louisiana student for the purpose of enrolling in a semester-long Metalsmithing and Jewelry course. The student need not have previous jewelry and metalsmithing experience, but will need to provide 3-5 examples of recently created artwork in any medium.

In exchange for the scholarship, the recipient will make a presentation to the HMAG membership in the form of a brief live lecture or short article for the HMAG newsletter following the experience. The recipient will receive a complimentary year-long membership to HMAG and will be featured in the HMAG newsletter as well as on the HMAG website.

The recipient will be chosen based on a combination of merit and need. Applicants need not be HMAG members, but must reside in Texas or Louisiana, and demonstrate proof of enrollment in a Metalsmithing and Jewelry course at an eligible 2-year or 4-year institution.

The next deadline is December 15, 2014, for use during the 2015-2016 school year. HMAG will coordinate with the applicant’s chosen school to award the scholarship funds.
