The ARRL Foundation is now receiving scholarship applications for the 2012 scholarship season. Each year the ARRL Foundation awards more than 70 scholarships that are funded entirely by the generosity of radio amateurs and friends to young hams that are pursuing higher education. The awards range from $500 to $5000.
All applicants must submit a full application and transcript to be considered (other rules may apply to specific scholarships). The application period for ARRL Foundation Scholarships opened on October 1, 2011, and will close promptly on February 1, 2012. Awards are usually announced to the winners by letter in mid-May. Applicants should review the scholarship descriptions as some awards have specific geographic criteria or requirements as to course of study.
Governed by a nine member volunteer Board of Directors, the ARRL Foundation is devoted to providing valuable programs to serve the Amateur Radio community.
