ARRL Scholorships

The ARRL Foundation Scholarship Program will award more than 100 scholarships to deserving radio amateurs pursuing higher education. Individual scholarships range from $500 – $25,000. All applicants must be active, FCC-licensed amateur radio operators and submit a completed online application by noon on January 4, 2023. Active foreign amateur radio operators are eligible for the Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC) scholarships.

For the 2023 scholarships, the ARRL Foundation will be utilizing the same Scholarship Management Platform that was used for the 2022 scholarships. Transcripts and additional required documents must be submitted with the application and not emailed separately. 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. Scholarship recipients will be notified in May 2023 via USPS and email. Awards are mailed directly to recipients’ schools.
