Fluid Power Robotics Challenge

The NFPA Robotics Challenge is a scholarship program that launched in the 2016-17 school year. In support of the missions of FIRST® Robotics, National Robotics League (NRL), and VEX Robotics, NFPA will be offering one merit-based scholarship, for $40,000 ($10,000 per year for four years), to a high school senior who participates as part of a 2022 FIRST® Robotics, NRL, or VEX Robotics Competition Team.

This scholarship may be used to study engineering at any accredited technical college or university in the United States. The goal of this scholarship is to bring an awareness of fluid power options in robotics to high school students and to stimulate increased use of fluid power products in these competitions.
