Benefits to Colleges and Universities of Offering a FIRST Scholarship

  • Attract the best and brightest minds to your campus. Promote your school to over 50,000 talented and motivated high school students who are interested in a range of engineering disciplines, mathematics, science, computer programming, and technology.
  • Attract students who are more likely to succeed in college. FIRST students have learned problem-solving and time management skills, have had hands-on experience, and know the power of teamwork and gracious professionalism. The life skills learned in FIRST make these students more successful in college.
  • Recognize and reward students who have learned the value of hard work, careful study, determination, and project completion.
  • Funding a scholarship is often just a matter of re-designating existing scholarship funds.
