Dear OMIK Members & Friends
One of the fundamental purposes of the OMIK Amateur Radio Association, Inc. is to encourage and motivate youth to aspire to higher goals in their respective fields by offering scholarships to deserving youth. This purpose is met each year through a partnership with the OMIK Scholarship Fund which is a 501(c)(3) organization.
In the past the OMIK Scholarship Fund has been meeting its goal of awarding seven to ten scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each.
To assist the Fund in maintaining or exceeding its goal now and in the future, the Executive Board of the OMIK Amateur Radio Association, Inc. is asking each Call Area to raise $1,000.
Raising money is always challenging but the OMIK Scholarship Fund is our way of paying it forward to these future scholars and leaders.
