Deanna Wardley, a BFA student in the Academy of Art University’s School of Jewelry & Metal Arts, has been awarded a scholarship by MJSA, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing professional skills in jewelry making and design.

Wardley, who is entering her senior year, is one of six students from schools nationwide to receive a $1000 scholarship. To be considered for the awards, she submitted three photos of her work, an essay, proof of financial need and a letter of recommendation.

Funds for the scholarships are generated through the MJSA Foundation’s Scholarship Group, which consists of six permanent endowment funds managed by the Rhode Island Community Foundation to study jewelry and metalsmithing.
