The Georgia Numismatic Association (GNA) is accepting applications for two scholarships for the 2013 American Numismatic Association Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs. The scholarships are available to both young numismatists (YN), age 13 to 22, and senior numismatists.

Last year three seniors and no juniors applied for the scholarships so scholarships were awarded to two seniors.

The two one-week sessions are scheduled from June 18-23 and June 25-30 2016. Completed applications and recommendations must be received by December 31.

Each scholarship covers the minimum “On-Campus Fees” (which includes double occupancy dorm room, board and tuition) for one session plus air travel.

Scholarships are awarded on a merit basis. Successful applicants will need to demonstrate their involvement, leadership and accomplishments in numismatics, as well as a desire to learn more about the hobby. Recommendations are also required.

Summer Seminar features a lineup of classes to meet virtually every collector’s educational needs. Class subjects typically include ancients collecting, paper money collecting and grading, counterfeit detection, coin grading, the Civil War exonumia, digital photography of coins, Colonial numismatics, hobo nickels carving, collecting medals and tokens, and more. Students learn from the hobby’s most prominent scholars, rising young stars and successful business leaders. Last year, over 300 students and instructors ranging in age from 13 to 87 attended Summer Seminar.

YN scholarship recipients will attend one week-long class of their choice, will be lodged in a Colorado College dormitory with counselor supervision, and participate in seminar programs and events.

Scholarships will be awarded by January 31, 2016, and preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate dedication to the hobby.
