The Professional Numismatists Guild will provide a scholarship to a deserving Young Numismatist to attend the 2011 American Numismatic Association Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs, Colo. This is the seventh consecutive year of PNG YN scholarships for the ANA program.
“The scholarship will cover airfare, tuition for one of the two week-long Summer Seminar sessions in June or July, meals and six nights of dormitory accommodations on the campus of Colorado College, site of the ANA headquarters,” said Robert Brueggeman, PNG executive director.
“All young numismatists between the ages of 13 and 22 are eligible to enter and are cordially invited to apply for the scholarship,” said Paul Montgomery, PNG president. “Entrants must submit a short essay outlining why they should be chosen as the 2011 scholarship recipient. The deadline for receipt of the entries is March 31, 2011.”
Entries must include the applicant’s name and contact information. The essays can be sent by e-mail to info@PNGdealers.com or by mail to PNG Executive Director, 28441 Rancho California Road, Suite 106, Temecula, CA 92590.
The two separate 2011 ANA Summer Seminar week-long sessions will be held June 25 to July 1, and from July 2 to 8. Participants ranging from teenagers to senior citizens spend 25 hours taking one course of their choice about specific coins or paper money or the hobby’s technical or business aspects. Additional information about the Summer Seminar sessions can be found on the ANA website, www.money.org.
