It’s time to apply for the HMAG Educational Scholarship!


The HMAG Educational Scholarship will be awarded to one lucky student.  Could it be you?  Only if you apply!

The Houston Metal Arts Guild (HMAG) offers an Educational Scholarship which awards $500 annually to an area student for the purpose of enrolling in a semester-long Metalsmithing and/or Jewelry course at a Houston area college or university.

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 the greater Houston area (within a 60 mile radius of downtown Houston).

The deadline is December 9, 2016, for use during the Spring 2017 semester.

HMAG will coordinate with the applicant’s chosen school to award the scholarship funds.
