Case Amateur Radio Club members Carolina Whitaker (KD9NKM), a fourth-year electrical engineering student, and Frances “Frankie” Bonte (KE8HPA), a second-year student studying material science and dance, recently received Amateur Radio Digital Communications Scholarships.
California-based Amateur Radio Digital Communications offers these competitively reviewed scholarships to licensed amateur radio operators who are students, active in their university amateur radio clubs, have GPA of at least 3.5, and demonstrate technical and community service activity involving amateur radio.
