The fellowship is meant to provide critical support to enhance a student's career. This will allow him to travel to the Czech Republic to be one of seven participants in the international Garnet Symposium held each summer in Turnov. He will then be traveling to Portugal to work with the Association of Contemporary Portuguese Jewelers. This organization supports contemporary studio jewelry through workshops and exhibitions.
Another MECA student, Tanner Price, also won the award this year.
