Precious Metals Groups Team Up to Provide Tuition Relief to Deserving Students

A national precious metals dealer and a sound money policy group are providing scholarships to deserving students.

CHARLOTTE, NC, UNITED STATES, May 8, 2018 / -- A national precious metals dealer is teaming up with a sound money policy group for the third straight year to help students pay for the ever-increasing costs of college.

Money Metals Exchange, recently ranked “Best in the USA,” has teamed up with the Sound Money Defense League to offer the first gold-backed scholarship of the modern era. These groups have set aside 100 ounces of physical gold to reward outstanding students who display a thorough understanding of economics, monetary policy, and sound money.

The Money Metals Exchange & Sound Money Defense League Scholarship is now accepting essays. The scholarship is open to high school seniors, undergraduate students, and graduate students with an interest in economics, specifically the tradition of the Austrian school. You do not have to be an economics major to be eligible to receive this scholarship.

We are excited to unveil this year’s blue ribbon panel of judges:
