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, residence within a particular ARRL Division, Section or state, and license class. 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.

The World Scout Jamboree will be active from 22 July to 1 August 2019 from the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. It is hosted by the North American team of Canada, Mexico, and the USA.
Since this World Jamboree is being hosted by North America, the call sign NA1WJ has been selected — representing North America’s 1st World Jamboree.
Lots of amateur radio stations around the world are needed to help them conduct several thousand on-the-air demonstrations for Scouts at the World Jamboree. They will be active on social media (Facebook and Twitter) and their website providing frequencies and times of operation. You can also join their email group at https://groups.io/g/na1wj
