 The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) will offer $2 million in scholarship funds to aspiring students in 2019, it said Wednesday.

Students interested in its gemology and jewelry-manufacturing arts programs, distance-education course and lab classes can apply for funding.

“Scholarships are a very important part of our mission-driven education programs, helping hundreds of students start or advance their careers in the global gem and jewelry industry every year,” said GIA vice president and chief academic officer Duncan Pay. “With scholarships, professional credentials, career services and an alumni network, GIA students are positioned for success.”

The GIA has awarded more than $10 million in scholarships over the past nine years, funded by the GIA Endowment Fund, as well as private donors. The application period will run from February 1 to March 31.
