Alice Abram Scholarship Contest

This scholarship is in honor of Colorado designer Alice Abrams and will be awarded to a designer wishing to attend the Academy. 

The scholarship was funded by the Future of Design Jewelry Education Fund, a charitable trust founded and administered by Cindy Edelstein. 

Its purpose is “to foster the future development of talented American jewelry designers by providing financial assistance in the form of scholarships, partial scholarships and awards to qualified students studying design and/or metals and/or jewelry courses at accredited educational institutions.”

The contest is open to jewelry makers who would like the Revere Academy educational experience. Jurors look for an individual whose work displays original, innovative, high quality jewelry design. The winner will be awarded the class of their choice during the Academy’s annual Master’s Symposium in April. Applicants submit ten print-ready images (up to 5MB in size each) of their work and answer two short essay questions.

Ms. Abrams is an accomplished jewelry designer as well as a longtime supporter of young people as they develop in the jewelry industry. “Alice’s talent and dedication to her craft, plus her commitment to helping others is magnanimous and greatly appreciated,” said Ms. Edelstein. "Over the course of her career, Alice displayed her collections nationally through art and jewelry galleries around the country as well as producing pieces for private commissions.”
