Copeland Scholarships are granted to graduating high school
Seniors from the Greater Austin Area, or members of AARC,
or college students from the greater Austin area colleges
or local area students attending out of state colleges.
Applicants must hold a current amateur radio license of
any class, and furnish a transcript of grades and courses
already taken, along with a copy of the FCC issued license,
or a Certificate of FCC examination credit from a recognized
Amateur Radio Volunteer Examiner group, (usually AARL
VEC or W5YI VEC certified). All documents listed to be
sent with the application, to Austin Community Foundation.
Applicants can also apply for a scholarship to attend

tuition, and fees, upon certification that the student
has enrolled and been accepted.
Applicants must apply by Jan. 31 to be considered for
the CURRENT year to Austin Community Foundation.
The Scholarships can be applied to either the Summer or

two year school.) The Copeland Scholarships have totaled
more than $200,000 over the life of the program. The earnings
on an investment each year determine the amount that can
