RAC Bulletin 2013-030E – RAC Announces Scholarships
Radio Amateurs of Canada is pleased to announce the granting of three academic scholarships and one community grant.
The individual recipients are Ms. Paulyn Mulles, VE3PJM who is attending Carlton University, Mr. Jason Deglint, VE7TJD who is attending University of Victoria, and Mr. Liam Bindle, VE5LRB who is attending the University of Saskatchewan. Each of these young Amateurs will receive a $500 academic scholarship to assist their further studies in Electrical Engineering. In their application each one stated how being an Amateur is a good match to their schooling and provides hands on ability to compliment their academic studies.
Shaftesbury High School in Winnipeg also received a $500 community grant to assist them to become the only permanent Amateur Radio ARISS Telebridge Station in Canada under the guidance of Mr. Robert Striemer, VE4SHS.
Look for more information on each of these recipients in an upcoming issue of TCA.
RAC would like to thank all the Amateurs from across Canada who have generously contributed to this fund administered by the Community Foundation of Ottawa (CFO) allowing us to give out these scholarships and grants. I encourage you to advise other Amateurs who are in a Science, Technical, Engineering or Science (STEM) field of studies to consider applying. Full details and an application are available at the RAC web site.
If you want to assist in this work please contact RAC HQ for more information on contributions to this or other funds to administered by RAC.
