This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The NFPA Robotics Challenge is a scholarship program that launched with the 2016-17 school year. In support of the FIRST® mission, NFPA will be offering one merit-based scholarship, for $10,000 per year for four years, to a high school senior who participates as part of a 2018 FIRST® Robotics Competition Team. This scholarship may be utilized for an Engineering course of study at any United States tech school/college or university that holds accredited status.

High School seniors must participate on a FIRST Robotics Challenge team and submit an application to the Fluid Power Robotics Challenge for this scholarship.

FIRST Robotics combines the excitement of sport with the precision of science and technology, making it one of the greatest high school robotics and STEM competitions in the country. In fact, previous participants have called the event the “hardest fun you’ll ever have.” Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of 20 or more students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.

This scholarship opportunity is reviewed based on the team's submission to the FIRST Robotics Competition.
This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
