The For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) organization declared that for this year, the sum allocated for scholarships for the U.S. will total $15 million. The money will go in 146 colleges, universities, corporations and associations.
With the current economic situation, the scholarships or any financial support is welcome. The money will be directed towards students in all U.S. For example, a week ago, in Los Angeles, 63 high schools teams attended FIRST Robotics Competition.
This year the battle will be held between 51,000 students from more than 2,000 teams and will start in April 27th in St. Louis. All that attend the Robotics Competition or Tech Challenge can ask for a FIRST scholarship.
This money is important for every student as with the experience they gain during this year and not only, they can find a good job after graduating and also it's important to know that during the last few decades, the projects developed under FIRST guidance have grown.
