To make a memorial contribution

Memorial contributions may be designated for one of the existing ARRL Foundation Funds. 

 To establish a scholarship

New scholarships are created by agreement on Terms of Reference as to the selection criteria and funding of a scholarship award of $1000 or more annually. The Terms of Reference must be approved by vote of the ARRL Foundation Board of Directors. Individuals or groups wishing to make a scholarship contribution as a single memorial gift may support one of the existing scholarships or the ARRL Foundation General Scholarship Fund after contacting the Foundation Secretary.

Scholarships may be funded with an annual contribution by December 31 of the year preceding the first award, or endowed with a lump sum contribution of $20,000 or more to fund a $1000 scholarship award each year from earnings on a lump sum endowment gift.
 
Contact a Foundation Director or the Foundation Secretary by phone at 860-594-0397 or by email at foundation@arrl.org to discuss the process of establishing Terms of Reference for a scholarship, funding options, selection criteria and a timetable.
