FIRST Robotics Scholarship

Harvey Mudd College packages one $10,000 scholarship, renewable for up to four years, to a student who has participated in a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) in high school or FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). Top candidates will have assumed some kind of leadership role on their team. The leadership role should be able to express how their participation has positively impacted their interest in the STEM fields.

The scholarship will be automatically renewed at the end of a student’s first year. It will be renewed thereafter, provided the student maintains a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA at the end of the student’s second and third years. Renewal of the award is contingent upon eight consecutive semesters of full-time enrollment, with the exception of study abroad or an approved leave of absence.

To apply for the scholarship, submit the online FIRST Scholarship application by January 20. Only first-year applicants are eligible to apply for the FIRST Scholarship; current Harvey Mudd students and transfers are ineligible.
