Logo Scholarship Guidelines 

The Amateur Radio Council of Arizona scholarship will be funded directly from the ARCA treasury. The amount and number of scholarships to be awarded in any given year will be decided upon by the ARCA board, which will consider the number of qualified applications received and the budgeted scholarship funds available. Scholarships will be awarded at the ARCA Summer Annual Meeting.
