ARRL Scholarship Deadline Is February 1
The application period for ARRL Foundation Scholarships is fast approaching. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2013. According to ARRL Foundation Secretary Mary Hobart, K1MMH, the 2013 collection of scholarship awards is bigger than ever, with eight new scholarships added in 2012. “The annual awards range from $500 to $2500, with the estimated total dollar amount of all awards in excess of $80,000,” she said. Scholarship recipients will be announced in May 2013 via letter and on the ARRL website.
“The message today is clear -- there is still time to apply for one of the many scholarships administered by the ARRL Foundation,” Hobart said. “If you know a young radio amateur who is pursuing higher education, please encourage him or her to apply. If you are a club officer, add this information to your website. With several new awards added every year, highly qualified young hams should review the list of available scholarships, complete the electronic application form and submit it -- along with a recent academic transcript -- before February 1.”
Information about all of the ARRL Foundation awards -- including descriptions, selection criteria, application forms and instructions -- is available on the ARRL Foundation website. The ARRL Foundation is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to Amateur Radio.
