Providing a FIRST Scholarship - How Does it Work?
- 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.
- 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.
- Your school receives the student applications, reviews them, selects winners, administers the funds, notifies the winners, and manages all scholarship needs with admitted students.
- Your school reports information about your scholarship winners to FIRST.
- 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.
