The aim of the Young Collector Scholarship Program is to nourish a vibrant culture for philatelic learning by providing support to young collectors.
Two scholarships, the Norris “Bob” Dyer Scholarship, sponsored by the British North American Philatelic Society, and the Wayne Youngblood Scholarship will be awarded to young stamp collectors between the ages of 16 and 24 who are residents of the United States or Canada.
Applicants must be 16 years of age, but not older than 24 years of as of June 1, 2019 to apply. Immediate family members of APS/APRL Board members or staff and current participants of the Young Philatelic Leaders Fellowship are not eligible. Young collectors who are not 18 years of age prior to June 1, 2019 must be accompanied by a parent or chaperone.
Each $1000 scholarship will help to defray the costs for a young collector between the ages of 16 and 24 to attend the 40th Annual Summer Seminar on Philately, scheduled for June 24 – 27, 2019 at the American Philatelic Center in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. Each application will be reviewed by a selection committee and awarded on the basis of merit.
Application Deadline: April 1, 2019.
