FIRST Scholarships

FIRST Scholarships are funded and administered by the scholarship providers. Scholarship providers are primarily four-year colleges and universities, but also include community colleges, technical schools, corporations, and associations. Each scholarship is unique and has its own award amount, eligibility requirements, application requirements, and application deadline. Most applications are due the last year of high school (December-April), but applicants should pay close attention to individual deadlines. Opportunities, applications, and details about available FIRST Scholarships can be found at the FIRST Scholarship site.

There is also a FIRST Newsletter that you can subscribe to for news and information.
