Civil War Token Society Announces Trask Family YN Summer Seminar Scholarship

In recognition of Susan Trask and her husband the late Frank Trask, the Civil War Token Society has created the annual Trask Family YN Summer Seminar Scholarship for young numismatists to apply for financial assistance to cover the cost of tuition, room, and board charged by the American Numismatic Association (ANA).

Susan and Frank Trask have been instrumental in supporting education and outreach in the collecting of Civil War tokens; pushing the envelope and inspiring great numismatists. Applicants should be excited about the hobby and eager to contribute to its growth.

How to Apply

Applicants must submit a written request to the scholarship committee chair, postmarked by the 1st of February, the calendar year of the upcoming Summer Seminar.

  • A published article in The Civil War Token Journal
  • Publishing online research, commentary, or collecting notes on Civil War tokens
  • A local presentation to a historical society or school group

Fine Details

Applicants must be Civil War Token Society members or pending membership at the time of application.

The award is not guaranteed on an annual basis and is subject to the scholarship committee review, composed of Civil War Token Society Board of Governors members.
