NOTE: Due to a lack of funding for the year 2017, MESI is temporarily inactive, but hopes to be in stronger financial position for 2018.

ABOUT Mosaic Education Scholarship Initiative (MESI) is an independent pay-it-forward initiative of Jacqueline Iskander Mosaics, and is not affiliated with the Society of American Mosaic Artists.

As funds permit, MESI provides additional financial assistance to go toward related expenses, such as transportation, food, lodging, and/or other conference educational opportunities.

MESI promotes volunteerism through a pay-it-forward emphasis.
