Re: 2012 IRI Scholarships!

Do have to be attending a university/college in September 2012? And does it matter if you are not American?

I would think that since FIRST is international, and we do love our Canadian friends, that anyone attending IRI should be eligible for these scholarships.

If this isn't the case, then I highly suggest that we double think the rulings.

Three Canadian 1114 students have won scholarships in the past, so not being an American won't hinder you.

Yes, you need to be graduating this year to get an IRI scholarship. The IRI scholarships are aimed at students who are graduating high school during this year, and are attending a post-high school college or university this coming fall.
