ARRL Foundation Awards 66 Scholarships in 2010


The ARRL Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce the scholarship recipients for 2010. Each year, the Foundation’s Directors have the honor and privilege of selecting Amateur Radio operators who will receive monetary assistance to further their undergraduate or graduate education. For 2010, the Foundation awarded 65 annual scholarships to young Amateur Radio operators valued at $71,450, almost $17,000 more than awarded in 2009. Four new scholarships were added for 2010: The Ted, W4VHF, and Itice, W4LVV Goldthorpe Scholarship; The Magnolia DX Association Scholarship and The Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society Scholarship. A second scholarship for the Bill, W2ONV and Ann Salerno Memorial Scholarship was also added this year.

In addition, there are currently four holders of the William R. Goldfarb Memorial Scholarship for whom the awards vary based on the college or university they attend, other awards they receive and other financial factors. For 2010, the Foundation’s Directors selected Kyle Ebersold, KB1MNN, of Holland, Massachusetts, as the recipient of this prestigious four year scholarship. The seventh Goldfarb Scholarship winner, Kyle continues the tradition of prior recipients, demonstrating superior academic performance, outstanding leadership and extraordinary Amateur Radio and community service. The Goldfarb Scholarship is the result of a generous endowment from the late William Goldfarb, N2ITP. Before his death in 1997, Goldfarb set up a scholarship endowment of close to $1 million in memory of his parents, Albert and Dorothy Goldfarb. Awarded to one high school senior each year, the Goldfarb Scholarship assists the recipient to receive a four-year undergraduate degree in engineering or science or in the medical or business-related fields. The terms of reference of the generous Goldfarb scholarship award require that recipients demonstrate financial need and significant involvement with Amateur Radio, in addition to high academic performance.

The application period for ARRL Foundation Scholarships opens October 1 each year and closes on February 1 the following year, with awards announced in May. Descriptions of all the available scholarships and selection criteria, as well as application instructions and forms can be found on the ARRL Foundation pages of the ARRL Web site. Beginning fall 2010, the application process for ARRL Foundation scholarships will “go green,” with application forms and transcripts accepted via electronic means only.
