The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA) is pleased to announce that it will award an ACE© It Appraisal Conference Scholarship to a deserving gemology student. NAJA invites GIA, FGA, FGAA, FGG, FCGmA, RGA students to apply for this scholarship for the 39th Annual ACE© It Winter Educational Conference, scheduled February 3-4, 2013 in Tucson, AZ.
This opportunity gives the gemology student a first hand experience of networking with appraisal professionals by attending the highly regarded NAJA educational experience during a time when Tucson devotes itself to gems, jewelry, and minerals. The scholarship, which covers the conference fee only, requires a resume, photo and an essay explaining the reason why the gemology student would choose to become a gems and jewelry appraiser. NAJA believes that becoming a gems and jewelry professional appraiser is a viable career option for gemological students.
Applications can be obtained through the NAJA website, www.najaappraisers.com/ScholarshipApp2012.pdf. Deadline for submission is November 1, 2012 and the final selection by the NAJA Scholarship Advisory Board will be announced December 1, 2012.
