In 1990, Nanticoke Amateur Radio Club life member, Walt Osborne, KC3UM, now a Silent Key established a scholarship

fund for the Nanticoke Amateur Radio Club, Inc. The fund was set up so that the Foundation for Amateur Radio, Inc. a non-profit organization would administer the scholarships without cost to the donors.














THE FOUNDATION FOR AMATEUR RADIO, INC., a non-profit organization with headquarters in Washington, D.C., plans to administer fifty (50) scholarships for the academic year 2012-2013 to assist licensed Radio Amateurs in the

pursuit of higher education.The remainder are administered by the Foundation, without cost for various donors.




Licensed Radio Amateurs may compete for these awards.They must be planning to pursue a full-time course of studies beyond

high school and be enrolled, or have been accepted for enrollment, at an accredited university, college or technical school.
The awards range from $5,000 to $300.00 with preference given in some cases to residence of specified geographical areas or the pursuit of certain study programs. Non-US residents are eligible to apply for some of the scholarships.Clubs, especially those in California, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin (areas of preferred residence for

some of the scholarships), are encouraged to announce these opportunities at their meetings, in their club newsletters, during

training classes, on their nets and on their clubs web pages.††
