The National Coin & Bullion Association (NCBA) is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2024 Young Numismatists Scholarship to attend the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Summer Seminar. The scholarship committee, chaired by Patrick I. Perez, has selected three deserving young numismatists to attend the week-long seminar at Colorado College in Colorado Springs.

The 2024 scholarship recipients are Eva Pate, Matthew Jackson, and Paul Bartlett. Each of them has demonstrated exceptional passion and dedication to the field of numismatics. This scholarship covers seminar fees, board, and round-trip airfare to Colorado Springs, providing a unique opportunity for these young collectors to enhance their knowledge and skills.

Perez expressed his enthusiasm for the chosen recipients, stating, “We are thrilled to support Eva, Matthew, and Paul in their numismatic journey. This scholarship aims to foster the growth of young collectors and build the vibrant community of numismatists. Their commitment to the field is truly commendable.”

While the Young Numismatists scholarship is awarded annually, NCBA was able to extend the scholarship to three recipients this year through a generous donation of $1,500 by Mike Fuljenz, member of the NCBA board of directors and scholarship committee. NCBA’s executive director, David Crenshaw, also shared his thoughts on the initiative, saying, “NCBA is dedicated to promoting education and passion for numismatics among the youth. We extend our gratitude to Mike Fuljenz for his generous donation, which allowed us to award scholarships to three deserving applicants. We believe in the power of education to shape the future of numismatics.”

The scholarship, part of the NCBA’s commitment to encouraging the next generation of numismatists, is open to individuals between the ages of 13 and 22. The application deadline is December 31 each year, with recipients notified the following January.  If you know of any budding numismatists who would be interested in attending the ANA Summer Seminar in 2025, please encourage them to apply for next year’s scholarship here.
