Through the Education & Technology Program, ARRL offers grants for radio station equipment and related software equipment and resources for schools in the US. The application requirements are straightforward: we look for commitment from teachers and school administration, a well conceived plan to use the resources to engage students, and a working relationship with local ham radio volunteers who will provide mentoring support for the school. Applicants must be a current ARRL member to apply.
- ETP School Station Grants – Awarded to schools that plan to use amateur radio as part of an enrichment program and/or as part of classroom learning.
