The HMAG Educational Scholarship fund will award its second scholarship of $500 to an area student for the purpose of enrolling in a semester-long Metalsmithing and Jewelry course at a greater Houston area college or university this May.

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 also receive a complimentary year-long membership to HMAG and will be featured in the HMAG newsletter as well as on the HMAG website.  The first winner was HCC-Central student, Meredith Schaffer, who is currently enrolled in Jessica Jacobi’s second level jewelry and metalsmthing course at HCC-Central.

The awardee will be chosen based on a combination of merit and need.  Applicants need not be HMAG members, but must reside in the Houston area (within a 60 mile radius of downtown Houston).

The submission deadline is May 15, 2013 for use during the 2013-2014 academic school year.  HMAG will coordinate with the student’s chosen school to award the scholarship funds.
