High School seniors can now apply to the American Numismatic Association for $1,000 scholarships to college.
Deadline is March 15. A winner will be chosen based on numismatic merit and financial need, according to ANA.
Besides holding membership in the ANA, applicants must be a graduating high school senior with a cumulative grade-point average equal to or greater than a 3.0. The winning student may use the scholarship at any two- or four-year college or trade school within the United States.
“The mission of the ANA is education and this scholarship provides a venue for younger members to reach their full potential,” said Rod Gillis, the ANA’s numismatic educator.
The first scholarship was graciously underwritten by Brian Fanton, ANA YN Committee chair and former member of the board of governors, and Walter Ostromecki Jr., ANA president.
