Scholarship Application

2022 ARRL Scholarship Program Is Now Open!

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the ARRL Foundation Scholarship Program for eligible amateur radio operators pursuing higher education.

Applications for the 2022 ARRL Foundation Scholarship Program will be accepted between midnight November 1, 2021 and 11:59PM EST on December 31, 2021. More than 100 scholarships ranging from $500 to $25,000 will be awarded in 2022. Scholarship recipients will be notified in May 2022 via USPS mail and email.

All applicants must be active, FCC-licensed amateur radio operators [NOTE: Active foreign amateur radio operators are eligible for the ARDC Scholarships]. All applicants must submit a completed online application.

NEW THIS YEAR: The ARRL Foundation is utilizing a new Scholarship Management Platform for the 2022 ARRL Foundation Scholarships. Applicants will no longer choose which scholarships they would like to apply for; instead, the new software will match the applicants with all of the scholarships they qualify for. Transcripts and any additional required documents must be submitted WITH the application and not emailed separately as was done in the past. A number of scholarships require additional documents, such as a letter of recommendation from a sitting Officer of an ARRL-affiliated club. Applications without accompanying transcripts and additional required documents (if applicable) will not be considered.

The ARRL Foundation Scholarship Committee will review all applicants for eligibility and award decisions.

General Scholarship Application Guidelines

  • Scholarships are awarded for the academic year that will begin no earlier than May 31st following the application deadline.
  • Transcripts must cover your entire high school career to date and, if in college, must include all semesters for which grades have been awarded.  If you are applying for graduate school assistance, high school transcripts are not necessary.
  • Some scholarships require additional documentation such as a letter of recommendation from a sitting Officer of an ARRL-affiliated club. You will not be considered for these scholarships unless you provide the required documents.
  • Some scholarships require attendance at specified schools or at schools within specified areas or states.  Scholarships may also require enrollment within certain major fields of study.  You will not be considered for these scholarships unless your application clearly provides the necessary qualifying information.
