The ANS has created a new fellowship for numismatic research. Here's the press release announcing the first recipient. Congratulations.
The American Numismatic Society (ANS) is pleased to announce that Melissa
Ludke has been selected as the inaugural recipient for the Chairman's
Fellowship for Numismatic Research. The fellowship will go toward funding her
dissertation research and planned book project:
Cosa and Socio-Economic
Interactions among Middle Republican Cities in Central and South Etruria.
Ludke is a doctoral candidate in Classical Archaeology at Florida State
University, where she earned her MA in Classical Archaeology; she received her
BA in Anthropology from Grand Valley State University. Ludke has worked on the
Cosa excavations in Ansedonia, Italy since 2016, and the Excavation Coins
Inventory Project with the Soprintendenza Archeologica della Toscana since
2022. Her dissertation will investigate the interactions between Cosa and
neighboring cities in the third century BCE by reexamining materials from the
site, including coin assemblages of regional, foreign, and Roman origin, to
determine overlapping circulation patterns and how those inform an interpretation
of those relationships. Ludke will present her research at a future Long Table
lecture, hosted by the ANS and open to members of the Society.
The ANS awards a limited number of Chairman's Fellowships each year, worth
between $1,500 and $2,500 each, to qualified graduate students or scholars
pursuing serious numismatic research projects that are expected to result in
academic publication. More information about the fellowship and applying can be
