The Austin Amateur Radio Club (AARC) is proud to offer two different Scholarships: the Greenwood and the Copeland Scholarships, to students attending or high school seniors planning to attend college or university. All required criteria must be met, of course.
The Greenwood Scholarships are open to any student who holds any level of Amateur Radio (Ham) license. The application period is open from January 1 through June 30 each calendar year for attendance during any future school period.
Importantly, Greenwood Scholarship amounts will vary from year-to-year, dependent upon our Scholarship fund performance. For reference, Greenwood Scholarships awarded for the 2023-2024 school year were between $5,000 and $10,000 each.
Additionally, the Greenwood scholarships are open to any resident of the state of Texas, attending college anywhere, or a student at any Texas college or university. Additionally, any relative of an Austin Amateur Radio Club member is eligible attending school anywhere is eligible.
All applications must meet all other criteria as mentioned on the detailed requirements page using our application form only and must contain all requested information.
Attendees of online-only schools are not eligible.
The Copeland Scholarships vary in amount depending on earnings and number of applicants, and are open to any Amateur Radio (Ham) license holder, regardless of duration held.
The Copeland Scholarships are open only to residents of Travis County or any of the six contiguous adjoining counties (Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays and Williamson). The application period is open from February 1 through April 15 each calendar year.
Both the Greenwood and Copeland scholarships may be applied for simultaneously.
Interested applicants are requested to read the Greenwood Scholarships and Copeland Scholarships detail pages carefully, as the requirements for each scholarship are similar, but not identical.
Note that stated scholarship amounts may vary from year to year depending on market conditions and scholarship committee criteria and decisions. All committee decisions are final.
