At Worthy, we like to think of ourselves as a selling partner for individuals looking to sell their jewelry. But that partnership is something we feel extends beyond the transaction and into the lives of the people we help by providing them with a safe and easy way to make the most of their jewelry as a financial asset. And an extension of that partnership is the Worthy Women’s Scholarship, which we are so proud to once again be able to offer.

The scholarship, which just finished it’s eighth year, is intended for women who have decided to enroll in school to pursue their passions and open up more doors for themselves and others. Over the years, we have helped eighteen worthy women make their dreams of returning to school a reality and continue to support women as they pursue their academic careers and onward. To apply, please review the requirements and writing instructions below.
