The American Numismatic Association
The American Numismatic Association is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items. With nearly 24,000 members, the Association serves the academic community, collectors and the general public with an interest in numismatics.
Today, the ANA headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado houses the largest circulating numismatic library in the world. Books, educational slide programs and instructional videotapes are loaned to members without charge other than postage and insurance. Also on the premises is a museum that includes extensive and ever-growing collections of coins, medals, tokens and paper money. Members may study the items on display and, by prearrangement, can use other museum materials for research purposes.
Applications for college scholarships provided by the ANA are being accepted through March 15. The scholarship fund provides 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.
Applications must be postmarked by March 15, 2017. Completed applications and references should be sent to:
