SAN DIEGO - Aug. 9, 2022 - PRLog -- Hampton University seeks to ensure that African Americans have access to educational opportunities in engineering and technology, as well as to inform the community of significant contributions made to the profession by African Americans and all ethnic minorities. More than 88% of Hampton University undergraduates receive some measure of financial assistance, which is why funding for unrestricted and current-use scholarships is vital to keeping students on track to obtaining a high-quality education.

The $200,000 grant from Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC) will provide scholarships to four students for one full academic year and assist with numerous gaps in tuition and associated costs of attending Hampton University. Hampton will introduce its students majoring in STEM related fields to amateur radio and engage them through activities that provide unique hands-on, experience-building opportunities. Additionally, the grant will fund hour-long educational programs highlighting scholars studying STEM topics that will be aired on Hampton's FM radio station (WHOV 88.1 MHz).
