The Northern California DX Foundation (NCDXF) has announced a scholarship grant to the Falkland Island Elementary and Middle schools to acquire Amateur Radio equipment, antennas, electronics kits, and science curriculum materials. The NCDXF said David Collingham, K3LP, was instrumental in getting the project off the ground during the recent Intrepid-DX Group DXpedition travels through the Falklands for the recent South Sandwich and South Georgia operations. Collingham met with government and school officials and teachers.
In addition to 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 the NCDXF general and scholarship funds are welcome. — Thanks to NCDXF Vice President Glenn Johnson, W0GJ
