The scholarship fund was established in 2015 in honor of Fred Weaver- KG4BKI (SK) who was a lifelong educator and student. Fred always took interest and gave encouragement in the educational endeavors of both relatives and friends, and was the driving force behind the club’s licensing class efforts. The fund was initially endowed by contributions from the Weaver family, members of the club and anonymous donations. To qualify for a scholarship award, an applicant must:
• Submit an application, including an essay
• complete their secondary education (High School)
• Be a member in good standing of the WTRA,
• Be currently a licensed amateur radio operator
• Be enrolled in an accredited two or four year college, accredited trade school, or accredited graduate school
Congratulations to Alex, Rebekah, Casey and Dakota, we wish you the best of luck in your studies and future endeavors!
