Harvey Mudd College offers one $40,000 scholarship, distributed annually in the amount of $10,000 per year, to a student who has participated in a FIRST Competition in high school. Top candidates will have assumed some kind of leadership role on their team, and should be able to express how their participation in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) or FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) has positively impacted their interest in the STEM fields.
The scholarship will be automatically renewed at the end of a student’s first year and 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 Jan. 10. Only first-year applicants are eligible to apply for the FIRST Scholarship; current Harvey Mudd students and transfers are ineligible.
