Providing a FIRST Scholarship - How Does it Work?

  1. Your school determines the scholarship amount, quantity of scholarships, eligibility requirements, and application date.  You provide FIRST with information and a description of your scholarship.
  2. FIRST markets your scholarship through a variety of methods.  If your yearly total scholarship offering is valued at $40,000 or more, your school has the opportunity to join other scholarship providers with a promotional booth (staffed by your representatives) at the FIRST Championship event, which takes place April 24-27, 2013 in St. Louis at the Edward Jones Dome at The America's Center.
  3. Your school receives the student applications, reviews them, selects winners, administers the funds, notifies the winners, and manages all scholarship needs with admitted students.
  4. Your school reports information about your scholarship winners to FIRST.
  5. FIRST recognizes both your school and your scholarship winners at the FIRST Championship.  We also post a list of scholarship winners on our web site.
