The GIA is inviting prospective students to apply for a scholarship for the 2009 GIA courses and program. More than 65 scholarships are available at GIA with a collective value of $372,308.
The GIA said the scholarships include $227,778 allotted to the scholarship fund by the GIA’s Board of Governors from interest earned through GIA’s permanently invested Endowment Fund.
The Institute’s Board has apportioned $98,500 of the total amount for international scholarships, which are available to anyone who is not a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
According to Matthew G. Stuller, A GIA board governor and head of its Endowment Committee, “In addition to last year’s expansion to London and India, we are offering a new opportunity to earn a Graduate Gemologist diploma on campus at GIA Thailand for the 2009 school year.”
