Applications for college scholarships provided by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) are being accepted through March 15. The scholarship fund was established in 2014 to provide a graduating high school senior who is also a member of the ANA with $1,000 to use at the university, community college, or trade school of the student’s choice. Scholarship winners will be chosen based on numismatic merit and financial need.

This scholarship can be used for tuition, books, or supplies directly related to class requirements. Up to two scholarships may be awarded annually.

“The ANA is fortunate to be able to offer scholarships directed towards higher learning,” said Rod Gillis, the ANA’s education director. “The recipients of this investment will be the movers and shakers of our hobby for years to come.”

Besides holding membership in the ANA, applicants must be a graduating high school senior with a cumulative grade-point average of at least a 3.0. The winning students may use the scholarship at any two- or four-year college, university, or trade school within the United States.

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.

The first scholarship was graciously underwritten by Brian Fanton, ANA Education & Young Numismatist Committee Chair and former ANA Governor, and Walter Ostromecki Jr., ANA Governor and past President. Funds for future scholarships will be raised through donations.

Applications must be postmarked by March 15, 2018. Completed applications and references should be sent to:
