Capitol College University
Hi! My name is Thalida Noel, a former member of the “Robo-Doves” robotics team from Western Senior High School in Baltimore Maryland and current freshman at Capitol College majoring in Computer Science! As a FIRST Robotics participant, I knew that Capitol offered a $5,000 annual Robotics Scholarship. But then, after completing my admissions application and exploring all of the Engineering, Information Technology, Computer Science and Business majors here, I became eligible for even MORE scholarship opportunities! Now I am enjoying a full ride as a member of the “Capitol Scholars Program”, a comprehensive learning experience for motivated technology students! Capitol College is perfect for FIRST Robotics and PERFECT for me! Click on this link to learn more about my school!
