Education: Foundation for Amateur Radio (FAR) Invites Scholarship Applications
The non-profit Foundation for Amateur Radio (FAR) is inviting applications for the
Amateur Radio-related scholarships it administers. These academic awards are

The FAR scholarship application process is open to Amateur Radio licensees worldwide.

be postmarked by April 30. Late applications will not be considered.
Applicants may type their information into the electronic form on the
FAR website http://www.farweb.org/. This is the preferred method of submission, although
handwritten forms also are acceptable. Applicants may add pages as
necessary to complete any answers. Electronic submissions, such as
MS-Word or PDF files, are preferable. If possible, scan any additional
letters of recommendation or endorsements into PDF files. Include the
number of the question to which they apply. Official or unofficial
transcripts may be submitted but are not required; it is preferred
that these documents be scanned into PDF files as well.
Applications may be submitted via e-mail. This is the preferred
