Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) is pleased to announce that we are seeking applications for grants from Amateurs across Canada in the following categories:
- Scholastic Grants for deserving Amateur Radio Operators
- Research Grants for research and development related to Amateur Radio

- Emergency Grants for radio equipment for emergency service groups
The Board of Directors is especially interested in awarding grants to deserving young Amateur Radio operators who are furthering their education at the College or University level in an Electrical Engineering course. If you are enrolled in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) program we also encourage you to submit a request. Send your College / University name, recent transcript, Amateur Radio Certificate and a brief biography to RAC. Further details and application forms are available at the RAC web site: http://www.rac.ca/en/rac/donations/foundation/grant-info.php.
If you have a child or grandchild in college or university this would be a great way to assist them furthering their education in the technology fields. Using the knowledge obtained from their Amateur Radio skills to further their engineering ability.
The Board of Directors is pleased to thank all the Amateurs across Canada who have generously donated to this program. If you wish to contribute please contact RAC HQ for further details.
I will be the contact person for this round (2013) of grant applications.
