(Fallbrook, CA) – For the third consecutive year, the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) will send a deserving young numismatist to the annual American Numismatic Association (ANA) Summer Seminar.
The scholarship for one of the two Summer Seminar sessions in 2007 will cover airfare, tuition, meals and six nights of accommodations at the Loomis Dormitory on the campus of Colorado College where the ANA headquarters is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
“All young numismatists between the ages of 13 to 22 are eligible to apply for the scholarship. They must send a short essay outlining why they should be chosen as the scholarship recipient. The deadline for receipt of the entries is March 31, 2007,” said Robert Brueggeman, PNG Executive Director.
Nominations also must include the applicant’s name and contact information. The nominations can be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman, 3950 Concordia Lane, Fallbrook, CA 92028.
The 2007 ANA Summer Seminar sessions will be held June 24 to 29 and June 30 to July 6. Additional information about the programs can be found online at the ANA web site, www.money.org.
“The ANA Summer Seminars can prove to be an invaluable experience for any numismatist, and especially exciting for a young collector who is just starting to enjoy the hobby. The PNG is pleased to help nurture talented young numismatists,” said Jeff Garrett, PNG President.
The money for the annual YN Scholarship is administered from the PNG’s Gerald Bauman Memorial Fund. Bauman, who died in 2001, served for many years as a prominent coin dealer with Manfra, Tordella & Brookes.
Founded in 1955, PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the top rare coin and paper money dealers in the United States and seven other countries. PNG member-dealers must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise, and must support a Collector’s Bill of Rights.
