Many of you received this email below announcing the ARRL scholarships for 22/23.
I wanted to bring one to your attention and hopefully you can raise awareness in our youth for one special scholarship for South Carolina.
I hope you have contacts with licensed graduating seniors that are planning to attend a 4 year university or college.
I highly suggest they apply for not one THIS one but for all they are interested in via the ARRL.
This year is a record for possible money for students in many categories, not all are engineering but are open to all.
130 scholarships will be offered totaling $900,000
