To: "" <>

Dear Mr. Bubier,

I wanted to let you and the other members of the Androscoggin ARC know that the student awarded the Androscoggin ARC Scholarship for 2017-2018 has declined the award.  The ARRL Foundation Scholarship Committee looked through the many applications we received, but did not find a suitable candidate that also meets the eligibility requirements of the Androscoggin ARC Scholarship Terms of Reference.  Therefore, no student has been selected this year.  We will hold funds until next year and hopefully we will find a high-performing, eligible recipient. 

I know this is disappointing, but the scholarship committee prides itself on awarding scholarship awards to the best of the applicants. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.
