Each year the ARRL Foundation awards scholarships to deserving amateur radio operators from the funds that they manage. West Gulf Division’s own Dr. David Woolweaver K5RAV, President of the ARRL Foundation, says that they issued $550,000 in scholarships last year. He said, “this year, through a generous contribution from Amateur Radio Digital Communications, Inc. (ARDC), they will be issuing 130 scholarships totaling $900,000!” There are twenty $25,000 scholarships, four $15,000, seventeen $10,000 scholarships, nine $5,000 scholarships as well as dozens of $1,000 and $500 scholarships.
Now is the time to act for and Senior in High School or any college student returning next fall. The ARRL Foundation Scholarship application period for the academic year 2022-2023 opens on November 1st and ends on December 31st, 2021. Do this NOW, before the holiday season gets too hectic.
The descriptions of the many scholarships available are online.
It is also effortless to apply as the scholarship application is online.
Since only amateur radio operator students may apply, the chances of being selected for a scholarship are good. It would be a shame for our Oklahoma students to miss this opportunity.
Since 1973, the ARRL Foundation, with the generosity of many donors and the hard work of a long line of dedicated Foundation Directors, has positively impacted the lives of many young amateur radio operator students. Being awarded an ARRL Foundation scholarship could mean the difference in whether a student can pursue their education in 2022-2023 or not.
Make sure every amateur radio operator student in your area knows this is available, and start that application process TODAY!
