Applications are being accepted for the annual Women in STEM Scholarships Sponsored by Dominion Energy. Scholarships will be awarded to three outstanding women (high school juniors and seniors) currently registered with a FIRST team in the FIRST Chesapeake District (FTC or FRC in DC, Maryland, and Virginia). The top scholarship is $3,000 with two $1,000 scholarships also available. Applications are due no later than 5:00PM on Sunday, November 15, 2020. Finalists will be notified no later than December 1, 2020 and must attend a virtual interview with the selection committee (date and time TBD). Scholarship recipients will be notified no later than December 15, 2020.
Important update: Because of virtual learning and COVID 19 restrictions, if you were registered with an FTC or FRC team in the District of Columbia, Maryland or Virginia during the 2019-20 academic year, but your team is not competing this season, you are still eligible to apply.
Scholarships will be presented at the annual Reaching for the Stars: Women in STEM Breakfast Sponsored by Leidos on January 27, 2021. Additional details can be found here. Questions? Contact Katarina Spears at .
