WIA Foundation

The WIA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) formed to encourage and promote education for the general advancement of mobile telecommunications. It was created in the memory and spirit of Eugene Bowler, who was a devoted and dedicated public servant and who, through his consistent and untiring efforts, served and enhanced the Land Mobile Radio Industry during his many years as a member of the staff of the Federal Communications Commission.

Its activities are meant to encourage the establishment of academic and training programs related to mobile communications technology and to aid the progress of mobile telecommunications generally; and to establish, promote, and provide scholarships and other grants to individuals, institutions, and organizations to encourage and foster the study of, and scientific research into, matters and issues affecting or relating to mobile telecommunications; and to make the results of such studies and research to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis.
