The Board of Directors of The Yasme Foundation has announced several supporting grants in furtherance of its goal of supporting the development of Amateur Radio. The grants will support the Foundation’s aim to encourage youth participation in Amateur Radio and in operating activities.
To support scholarships and youth programs, grants will go to the ARRL Foundation, to fund the Yasme Foundation scholarship, and to the Foundation for Amateur Radio (FAR), to support its 2017-2018 scholarship program. A third Yasme Foundation grant will make it possible for two young Ethiopian amateurs to take part in the Youth Contesting Program in Estonia.
To support HF operating around the world, additional Yasme Foundation supporting grants went to the DX Code of Conduct founder and website operator and to the 2016 Friendship Radio Games (FRG).
The Yasme Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation organized to support scientific and educational projects related to Amateur Radio, including DXing and the introduction and promotion of Amateur Radio in developing countries.
