Young Numismatist Summer Seminar Scholarship Program
Each year as part of the PNG Young Numismatists (YN) Scholarship Program, the Professional Numismatists Guild awards a deserving young numismatist a scholarship to the popular American Numismatic Association Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The PNG scholarship covers airfare, tuition for one of two week-long Summer Seminar sessions, meals and five nights of dormitory accommodations on the campus of Colorado College, the site of the ANA headquarters.
All young numismatists between the ages of 13 and 22 are eligible to enter and are encouraged to apply for the scholarship. Submissions will be accepted through March 30, and should include the nominee’s name, age, contact information and an essay outlining why he or she should be awarded the scholarship. Nominations can be sent by e-mail to email@example.com, or by mail to: Tina Bellanca, PNG Executive Assistant, 28441 Rancho California Road, Suite 106, Temecula, CA 92590.
The week-long ANA Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs can be an invaluable experience for any numismatist, and especially exciting for a young collector who is just starting to enjoy the hobby. The PNG is pleased to help nurture deserving young numismatists, so please pass this information along to any you know.
According to PNG President Dana Samuelson, “young collectors are the future of our hobby, and these annual PNG scholarships help eager young numismatists learn more about the hobby through the unique learning experiences the ANA offers with its annual Summer Seminars. The PNG is proud to continue its support of this outstanding program.”
