NCDXF Announces Falkland Island School Grant
March 3, 2016
It is with great pleasure that the Northern California DX Foundation announces a scholarship grant to the Falkland Island Elementary and Middle schools to complete the acquisition of amateur radio equipment and antennas, electronics kits, and science curriculum materials.
David Collingham, K3LP, has been instrumental in getting this off the ground during the recent Intrepid DXpedition travels through the Falkland Islands for the recent South Sandwich and South Georgia DXpeditions. Dave met with government and school officials and teachers.
Besides providing grants to rare and expensive DXpeditions, the NCDXF charter provides for certain scholarship opportunities from a separate and established scholarship fund. For example, NCDXF currently provides tuition to Contest University for hams 25 years of age or under.
Contributions to both the NCDXF general Fund and the scholarship fund are welcomed. Contributions are tax deductible to the maximum extent provided by law.
Have you contributed to help make DX happen…and to encourage our younger hams in the hobby?
Glenn Johnson, W0GJ
NCDXF Vice President
