Emerging Professional ANA Summer Seminar Scholarship
-Coming at a Later Date
Central States Numismatic Society is proud to announce the formation of a new scholarship for young numismatic professionals to attend the ANA’s Summer Seminar.
The Emerging Young Professional Scholarship is designed to help nurture and educate young dealers and help them build a professional network through attending Summer Seminar. CSNS President Mitch Ernst added, “We all have heard that YN’s are the future of the hobby. Yet, no one has thought about helping the future of the dealer side of the hobby. It is our hope that this scholarship will help fill that need.”
The scholarship includes tuition, room, and board, as well as coach airfare from the airport nearest the awardee's place of legal residence. The approximate value of the award is $1400.
Applicants must be thirty years of age or younger, prove they are employed in the numismatic trade, must personally apply (no third party applications), and need not be a Central States Member.
Full details of and information about the scholarship can be found in the application.
