ARRL Foundation Scholarship Program Accepting 2016-17 Academic Year Applications


The ARRL Foundation is accepting academic year 2016-17 applications from eligible young radio amateurs planning to pursue higher education. All applicants must be active FCC licensees and submit an online application. More than 80 scholarships ranging from $500 to $5000 will be awarded in 2016. In addition, one applicant will be selected to receive the prestigious William R. Goldfarb Memorial Scholarship, awarded to a high school senior pursuing a degree in business, computers, medical, nursing, engineering, or science. Students submitting 2016 applications should read the ARRL Scholarship Descriptions carefully and apply only for those scholarships for which they are eligible. Some scholarships have geographic criteria or other requirements.


All applicants must submit a completed online application. Applicants must also forward a copy of their academic transcripts from their most recently completed school year. Applications without accompanying transcripts will not be considered. Cell phone photos of transcript(s) will not be accepted. All transcript(s) must be scanned into a PDF and sent via e-mail.

Applicants for the William R. Goldfarb Memorial Scholarship must also submit a PDF of their FAFSA form by February 18, 2016, as well as a copy their academic transcript from their most recently completed school year.

Applicants will receive a confirmation message when their applications have been successfully processed.

The 2016 application window opened on October 1. Applications for the 2016 scholarship process must be received by 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on January 31, 2016. Transcripts must be received by Thursday, February 18, 2016. Award recipients are typically notified by mid-May by USPS mail and e-mail.
