ARRL Foundation Scholarship Application Deadline Fast Approaching

01/23/2012

Calling all college students and high school seniors! The deadline to apply for scholarships administered by the ARRL Foundation is February 1. Will you be nominated to receive one of the prestigious ARRL Foundation Scholarships? Only one week remains until the application period for the 2012 scholarships closes on February 1.

Each year, the ARRL Foundation awards dozens of scholarships to young hams pursuing higher education. The total of these awards tops $80,000. Several hundred of the country’s top high school and college students vie for awards ranging from $500 to $5000.

It’s easy to apply. All the selection criteria, application forms and instructions can be found on the web. Some scholarships have geographic criteria, others have a preference for field of study, and still others have no curricular or residence requirement. The fundamental requirement is that an applicant be active FCC-licensed radio amateur. The application process is completely electronic, including the required academic transcript.

If you know a young ham who is attending college or is a high school senior, let them know that the deadline is only a week away. Any questions may be emailed to foundation@arrl.org. But do it soon -- time is running out!
