College scholarship applications due March 15

Applications for college scholarships are being accepted by the American Numismatic Association until March 15.


The financial scholarship amount is $1,000. It may be applied toward university, community college or trade school.

Winners will be chosen according to numismatic merit and financial need, according to the ANA.

The ANA will award up to two scholarships.

Applicants must hold membership in the ANA and be a graduating high school senior with a cumulative grade-point average of at least a 3.0.

Two letters of reference must be sent on the applicant’s behalf. The authors of the references may not be family members. Reference letters must be submitted by the person writing the reference, not the scholarship applicant, and must be received at the ANA by March 15.

Applications must be postmarked by March 15, 2018. Completed applications and references should be sent to: ANA College Scholarship Committee, c/o Rod Gillis, 818 N. Cascade Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80903.
