The 2008 SNAG Conference Student Scholarship program and are currently at the campaigning stage for donations. With a very large amount of scholarship money already donated by renowned jeweler Todd Reed and a possible corporate sponsorship, we are
aiming for the best year yet with the most student scholarships awarded.
Some colleges and universities have already responded to announcements
they've seen regarding this year's scholarship program and have responded regarding
their interest in participating. The only way we can award a student from
any school is if we receive notice of participation from a jewelry professor
or head of department via email.
In the past two years of this program's existence, not one school that has
asked for a scholarship has been denied. We have always received enough
donation money to cover at least one student from each participating
college/university. The scholarship will cover the conference fee and will
allow the awarded students entrance into the conference in Savannah, Georgia
for FREE. Travel expenses, lodging and food are still the responsibility of
the students, so please make sure they are aware of the necessary "extras".
If you have already registered for the conference, you are still
eligible for the scholarship. If that situation should arise, SNAG will
refund the admission fee after the conference as they have in previous
(Students could just register, and then SNAG will reimburse them.)
Responses must be received no later than Wednesday, February 13th, 2008. Any
responses received after that date will not be accepted, due to fairness of
those who respond within the deadline.
