Notice of ARRL Foundation Scholarship Application deadline
The ARRL Foundation scholarship application period for the academic year 2021 ends on December 31, 2020. The Foundation issued nearly $300,000 in scholarships in 2020 and for the academic year 2021 there has been a significant increase in the number of large dollar scholarships thanks to a generous contribution from the Amateur Radio Digital Communication group (ARDC).
For the academic year 2021, there are two new $25,000 scholarships, thirteen $10,000 scholarships, nine $5,000 scholarships as well as dozens of $1,000 and $500 scholarships.
A description of the many scholarships available is online: http://www.arrl.org/scholarship-descriptions
It is also very easy to apply as scholarship applications are online: http://www.arrl.org/scholarship-application
Since only amateur radio operator students may apply, the chances of being selected for a scholarship are good. It would be a shame for your members to miss this opportunity. Please place a notice in your December Newsletter or send a separate e-mail to your Section to let your members know that the ARRL Foundation offers over 100 scholarships and it only takes a simple online application to apply.
Since 1973, the ARRL Foundation, with the generosity of many donors and the hard work of a long line of dedicated Foundation Directors, has had a positive impact on the lives of many amateur radio operator students. To ensure that this positive impact does not wane, I ask each of you to timely notify your members of this opportunity. Being awarded an ARRL Foundation scholarship could mean the difference in whether a student can pursue their education in 2021 or not.
Thank you and the Foundation and I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Dr. David Woolweaver, K5RAV
President, ARRL Foundation
