De Beers Group: Jewellery Scholarships 2023 to 24
We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2023 to 2024 De Beers Group: Jewellery Scholarships at Morley College.
These Jewellery scholarships are open to applicants over the age of 18. We welcome applicants from underrepresented communities who would like to learn how to make jewellery or to further their learning and careers in jewellery making. There are two scholarship awards: The Starter Scholarship and The Intermediate Scholarship. Funds have been made available to support study and funding for two scholars in each category at Morley College London, thanks to the generosity of the ‘De Beers Group’.
The De Beers Group Starter Level Jewellery Scholarship
This scholarship is for applicants wanting to start a career in jewellery making. The recipient will undertake a year of part-time study in jewellery on our Level 1 Jewellery Certificate course and additional short courses throughout the year at Morley College London. There is a materials grant to help you progress to working in precious metals and mentoring to help you develop your style and your vision. You may have already tried jewellery making on a short course but are looking to learn jewellery making in view to develop a career in the industry.
The De Beers Group Intermediate Level Jewellery Scholarship
The Intermediate Level Jewellery Scholarship is for applicants who have a good knowledge of jewellery making, wishing to explore and expand their skill levels and to develop their jewellery and their business. The applicant should have a developed jewellery design style and have either started a business or are ready to start launching a business but who need assistance or support with the next steps of their career.
The Scholarship offers the recipient a one year’s part-time programme of free jewellery, design and business classes at Morley College, a materials grant, mentoring from a professional jeweller, and an opportunity to exhibit work at the end of the year at Morley College.
