moderated The ARRL Foundation Scholarship application

The ARRL Foundation Scholarship application period for the academic year
2022-2023 opens on November 1st and ends on December 31, 2021.  I am
asking you as a Section Manager to notify your Section membership of
this opportunity. The Foundation issued $550,000 in scholarships for
2021-2022 and for the academic year 2022-2023 there has been a
significant increase in the number of large dollar scholarships
available thanks to a generous contribution from Amateur Radio Digital
Communications, Inc. (ARDC).  
 
For the academic year 2022-2023, 130 scholarships will be offered
totaling $900,000!  There are twenty $25,000 scholarships, four $15,000,
seventeen $10,000 scholarships, nine $5,000 scholarships as well as
dozens of $1,000 and $500 scholarships.  
 
The descriptions of the many scholarships available are on line.

It is also very easy to apply as the scholarship application is on
line.

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
Newsletter or send a separate E-Mail to your Section to let your members
know that the ARRL Foundation offers over 130 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 young 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 2022-2023 or not.  
 
Thank you.
