2009 /FIRST/ Scholarship News – May Update *

Post by Admin on Thu May 14, 2009 9:42 am

Greetings Teams,

It was great to meet some of you at the Championship in Atlanta at Scholarship Row. Those of you that visited us had a chance to speak to representatives from 28 colleges/universities or organizations that offer /FIRST/ Scholarships. During the Championship, some of the students who had already been notified that they had won 2009 /FIRST/ Scholarships gathered at Scholarship Row to meet and talk with Dean Kamen and Woodie Flowers. See the picture of these scholarship winners at .

*SENIORS*, there are still 9 /FIRST/ Scholarships for which you can apply (whose application deadlines dates are in the future). And there is 1 scholarship left for which *JUNIORS* can apply. But hurry up, some of those deadline dates are approaching very quickly.

Eastern Michigan University (5/15)
Norfolk State University/BAE Systems (6/1)
Washtenaw Community College (6/10)
Society of Petroleum Engineers - Delta Section (6/15)
Colorado Technical University - Denver (6/20)
Westwood College (7/1)
College of Southern Maryland (7/1) (for JUNIORS and SENIORS)
Pennsylvania College of Technology (7/1)
Schoolcraft College (7/1)

Be sure to check out the /FIRST/ Scholarship web page (at ) and follow the link to the *2009 /FIRST/ Scholarship Opportunities*. After selecting FTC as the Program (and clicking GO>), you can sort the scholarship list by application deadline date by clicking on the Deadline column header.

*/FIRST/ Scholarship Winners *-- To all of you who have already been offered a 2009 /FIRST/ Scholarship, congratulations! This is a great achievement, and /FIRST/ is very proud of you. Of course you will want to thank your scholarship provider. Your scholarship award letter may have included the name and address to whom you can send a thank you note. If not, you can contact the school/organization to ask for the contact information of the person to thank.

*Team Mentors – Help us collect information about local scholarships for /FIRST/ students*

In addition to our official /FIRST/ Scholarships that are listed on the /FIRST/ website, there are many local scholarships specifically for students on FRC and FTC teams. /FIRST/ Headquarters would like to recognize and understand the magnitude of these local scholarships. Please help us collect this data by notifying us of any students on your team who have won one of these scholarships. These are college scholarships that are offered _only_ to /FIRST/ students. They might be awarded by one of your team sponsors, a regional sponsor, your /FIRST/ booster club, your high school, a local college, etc. (Please do not report students who have won one of the /FIRST/ scholarships that are listed on the /FIRST/ website. We are notified of these winners by the scholarship provider.)

To make it easy for you to report this information, please download the Excel spreadsheet from the link below,

Complete this form (as fully as possible), and send as an email attachment to . Thanks for your help!
