JCK is now accepting grant proposals for its 19th annual Industry Fund. Each year, grants are awarded to individuals, groups, or associations whose work improves the jewellery industry. In 2016, more than $293,000 U.S. was awarded. Established in 1997, the JCK Industry Fund supports the development and research of programs for the betterment of the industry. To date, it has awarded more than $5.5 million.
JCK Events has announced the recipients of the 2013 Industry Fund. “The Industry Fund has been helping jewellery professionals and organizations achieve their goals for well over a decade and has made a substantial impact on our industry as a whole,” said JCK’s Yancy Weinrich.
Twenty students at the University of Zambia (UNZA) will soon learn the basics of coloured stone identification and other jewellery-related topics, thanks to a $25,000-grant from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
