Dates for the two one-week sessions are June 17-22 and June 24-29. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit. Successful applicants will demonstrate involvement, leadership and accomplishments in numismatics as well as a desire to learn more about the hobby.
In addition to learning from the hobby’s most prominent leaders and scholars, full scholarships cover tuition for a one week-long class, accommodations in a Colorado College dormitory, meals and airfare. Partial scholarships cover tuition only.

“Summer Seminar is a once-a-year opportunity for numismatic learning and camaraderie that offers students an array of weeklong courses designed for discovery or continued study,” reads the ANA website. “For over 40 years, Summer Seminar has featured classes to suit virtually every collector’s hobby needs, including Detecting Counterfeit and Altered Coins, Grading United States Coins, Early American Copper Coinage, Digital Numismatic Photography, Morgan Silver Dollars, Coins of Colonial America, and much more.”
“Through the generosity of members and funds raised by the YNs themselves, the ANA awards as many as 40 merit-based scholarships annually,” said Amber Bradish, ANA seminar co-ordinator. “This is an excellent opportunity for highly motivated and intelligent adults and young adults to enhance their knowledge of numismatics.”
Scholarships are made possible through funding programs such as the Robert Lecce Advanced Scholarship and the Summer Seminar Young Numismatist Scholarship, which are funded by generous donations from members and member organizations.
