Since 1996, WPI has been offering full tuition scholarships to members of the FIRST community.
These are pretty amazing odds for a full-scholarship given the limited applicant pool!
Two full-tuition scholarships are available:
WPI FIRST Design Innovation Scholarship. In addition to the full scholarship, three runners-up will receive $20,000 scholarships. Submissions must be a video or presentation focusing on the design innovations of your team’s robot and also touch on team spirit, sportsmanship, or teamwork.
WPI FIRST Community Scholarship. Submissions must be an essay focusing on leadership and its impact and the role of science and technology in society. This scholarship is intended to be awarded to a student who identifies as part of traditionally underrepresented group in STEM.
We want to have so many submissions it keeps us up for days reading them!
To apply, you must already be accepted to WPI. The deadline for scholarship submission is March 7th.
