Applications for the 2020 ARRL Foundation Scholarship Program will be accepted between September 1 and December 31, 2019. All applicants must be FCC-licensed radio amateurs, and many scholarships have other specific requirements, such as intended area of study, license class, or residence within a particular ARRL Division, Section or state. Applicants should review the scholarships and check off the ones for which they are eligible. If you complete an online application, you must also email a PDF of academic transcripts from your most recently completed school year by January 13, 2020. Applications not accompanied by transcripts will not be considered. The ARRL Foundation Scholarship Committee will review all applicants for eligibility and award decisions. Scholarship recipients will be notified in May 2020 via USPS mail and email. For more information, visit the ARRL Foundation Scholarship Program page.

The contribution from Charles "Chick" Allen, NW3Y, of Seaford, Delaware, will be used at the discretion of the WWROF Board of Directors to promote and enhance youth involvement in radiosport, WWROF said in announcing the contribution. "It is truly an honor to work with WWROF by providing support for one of Amateur Radio's greatest needs -- encouraging youth to discover and enjoy radiosport in new and creative ways," Allen said. WWROF Chairman Tim Duffy, K3LR, thanked Allen for his generosity. "On behalf of the WWROF, I want to express our gratitude for Chick's donation and am excited about what it will mean for the future of contesting."
