The Women’s Jewelry Association Foundation—with support from Black in Jewelry Coalition and Jewelers Mutual Group—has debuted the Radiant Minds Technology Scholarship: a new business technology scholarship designed to attract new talent and strengthen the jewelry and gem industry’s talent pool in technology and business operations roles.
The scholarship is available to women of color inside and outside the industry who are interested in serving in organizational roles in the jewelry industry that require technological skills related to front and back-end development, user experience design, or coding.
Its recipient will be awarded up to $17,500 to pay for a training and a certification program at an agreed-upon institute or school, such as the Flatiron School, which offers software engineering, data science, and product design programs, and General Assembly, which hosts software engineering and UX design programs.
The scholarship winner will also be introduced to various leaders within the Jewelers Mutual Group organization who will offer guidance and advice.
The application deadline is June 30. Apply for the Radiant Minds scholarship here.
