“Thank you for selecting me as a recipient of this year’s Educational Endowment Scholarship. I appreciate your generosity and support of emerging artists in the jewelry and metalsmithing community. In receiving this award, my financial burden was lightened and allowed me to put all of my focus on my studio work. Your generosity is something to look up to, and I hope that one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals as you have for me.” — Valerie James, 2018 Educational Endowment Scholarship recipient

Adam Atkinson“The Educational Endowment Student Scholarship is more than a fund for purchasing tools and materials. It has fueled the fire beneath my feet, and pushes me forward. As a first generation college graduate, the opportunity to become a participant in the metals field was something I never dreamed would be possible. As a graduate student, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to piece together my identity as a maker, and receiving the Educational Endowment Scholarship has helped close the gap between those missing patches. I smith with greater confidence than I ever have before. I feel an incredible debt to the community that has made this scholarship possible, and hope to reciprocate their kindness through hard work, ethical citizenship, and the spread of education.” Adam Atkinson, 2017 Educational Endowment Scholarship recipient
