W6EEN Memorial NCDXF Scholarship Fund

Don Doughty, W6EEN, was a long-time friend and supporter of the NCDXF. In May 1997, Don donated $20,000 to the NCDXF to create a scholarship fund for qualified radio amateurs. He contributed another $20,000 in 2006 to this fund. Interest from the principal provided one or more yearly scholarships for collegiate amateur operators. The first of these was awarded in 1998.

Beginning April 22, 2013, NCDXF has decided to use these funds in a new way. NCDXF is committed to bringing younger DXers and Contesters into our hobby.  Starting April 22, 2013, NCDXF will provide full tuition scholarships for hams 25 years of age and younger at all DX University and Contest University sessions held in North America for the next year. This includes those held at the 2013 Dayton Hamvention. There is no restriction as to class of license.

If you are a licensed amateur radio operator 25 years of age or younger, you can apply for a free tuition scholarship by contacting the appropriate University directly:

DX University: http://www.dxuniversity.com/contact_form.php

Contest University: http://www.contestuniversity.com/main/page_contact_us.html

We hope that all younger hams will take full advantage of this new scholarship program to improve your skills by learning from some of the best DXers and Contesters on the air today. We want to support you as you work toward DXCC, your first DXpedition, a contest award, or to just become a better operator. Best of luck!

Contributors, please note: The W6EEN Memorial NCDXF Scholarship Fund is funded only by donations directed specifically to this fund. Unless you have so designated the Scholarship Fund, your donation will go into NCDXF’s General Fund to support DXpeditions and other DX-related projects.
