The Worldwide Radio Operators Foundation will award up to two scholarships of $2500 each to amateurs who demonstrate active on-the-air operation, including entering contests or achieving awards such as DXCC or WAS. There are no restrictions on applicant nationality, place of residence, location of institution, or intended field of study. Preference will be given to applicants 25 years of age or younger.

The WWROF scholarships will be administered by the ARRL Foundation. Online applications are now being accepted for the 2023 awards. The deadline is Wednesday, January 4, 2023, at 12:00 PM (noon) EST (1700 UTC).

WWROF Chairman Tim Duffy, K3LR, commented, “We have received several donations earmarked for Youth programs. The WWROF created these scholarships to enable active young operators to continue their studies.”

The World Wide Radio Operators Foundation (WWROF) was created in 2009 by a group of radio operators who saw a need for an independent organization devoted to the skill and art of radio operating. We believe that amateur radio contests provide a means of testing operating skill and that worldwide contest sponsors can benefit from the support we can provide. WWROF owns, operates, and maintains the log-processing systems and awards programs for contests sponsored by CQ magazine and others.
