Research fellowships for masters degree


The School of Jewelry Arts, with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, created five annual Masters Study Fellowships in 2019 for students enrolled in university Masters Degree programs, with a jewelry related topic. The students must be pursuing a degree in either Art History or Gemology.   .
