UBM Asia Provides Scholarships and Grants for Jewelry Education in China

UBM Asia recently held an award ceremony for 26 students who received scholarships and grant money to further their jewelry education.

The tradeshow organization provided renminbi 50,000 yuan ($8,000) for the first ever UBM Asia Scholarship and 30,000 yuan ($4,800) for the annual UBM Asia Grant.

The UBM Asia Scholarship awards were presented to 13 students by Wolfram Diener, Senior VP of UBM Asia. The UBM Asia Grant was presented to 13 underprivileged students by Meng Yuanbei, party secretary of Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic.

“Through the collaboration with the Jewelry Institute of Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic, we hope to provide more practical learning experience to the students, and groom them to become jewelry professionals with international mindedness, thereby contributing to the development of jewelry industry in China,” Diener said.

UBM Asia will arrange its management teams to give lectures at the Jewelry Institute, and invite teachers and students to its jewelry fairs. In addition, UBM Asia will launch a special incentive program. Students winning awards in international and national jewelry competitions will be fully funded to visit the world's largest jewelry fair, the September Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair organized by UBM Asia.
