OHNS Announces YN Scholarship

A scholarship to assist members with educational expenses has been created to honor Archie Taylor. This scholarship was named in his honor as Archie was a champion of the Original Hobo Nickel Society (OHNS) and a strong campaigner for the art of carving nickels. The scholarship is to be awarded annually to one applicant meeting the qualifications as stated on the OHNS website where the application form can also be found. The scholarship is awarded to a new recipient every year and is funded by monetary donations and coins donated for auction at the annual OHNS Auction in January of every year. Those coins that are donated specifically to fund the scholarship will be featured in a separate section of the catalog. The deadline for submission is August 15th this year due to the current COVID-19 situation.

The Archie Taylor Educational Scholarship is open to YN members of OHNS and also children and grandchilren of OHNS members. More information can be found in the blue area on the Club Info page.
