Hi, all!

The following arrived today from the Foundation for Amateur Radio.

"THE FOUNDATION FOR AMATEUR RADIO, INC., a non-profit organization with 
headquarters in Washington, DC, plans to administer seventy-three (73) 
scholarships for the academic year 2000-2001 to assist licensed Radio 
Amateurs.  The Foundation, composed of over seventy five local area Amateur 
Radio Clubs, fully funds ten of these scholarships with the income from 
grants and its annual Hamfest.  The remaining sixty-three are administered 
by the Foundation without cost to the various donors.

"Licensed Radio Amateurs may compete for these awards if they plan to 
pursue a full-time course of studies beyond high school and are enrolled in 
or have been accepted for enrollment at an accredited university, college 
or technical school.  The awards range from $500 to $2500 with preference 
given in some cases to residents of specified geographical areas or the 
pursuit of certain study programs.  Clubs, especially those in Delaware, 
Florida, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconson, are 
encouraged to announce these opportunities at their meetings, in their club 
newsletters, during training classes, on their nets, and on their world 
wide web home pages.
