Scholarship Advice
Remember that some scholarships go unawarded because no one applies for them. If you fit the eligibility requirements for a scholarship, go for it!
Pay attention to those application deadline dates.
What if you have just missed the application deadline date? Call the school or organization and ask if they will accept a late application. Some schools will accept applications even after the deadline date. It certainly can’t hurt to ask!

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)

“WPI has been the perfect extension for my FIRST involvement, and allows me to stay involved in FIRST programs while preparing for a successful career as an engineer.”
- Stephanie Hoag, WPI Allaire Scholarship recipient, Class of 2012

Again in 2010, Worcester Polytechnic Institute will award both the WPI Allaire and WPI Design Innovation Scholarships to FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) or FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC) team student participants. Please remind any high school seniors on your team of WPI’s scholarship opportunities for FIRST participants! The scholarship application deadline is March 8th.

Additionally, in celebration of the first FRC Regional Competition to be held at WPI, WPI and SolidWorks will offer two scholarships totaling $15,000 to seniors participating in the WPI Regional, as well as a one-time $2,500 scholarship to each member of the Chairman’s Award-winning team.
