Robotics competitors eligible for scholarship

Advertiser Staff

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard plans to grant a full university scholarship to a student who has competed in robotics.

The scholarship covers up to four years of tuition, plus fees and books at the University of Hawaii's College of Engineering.

The program is open to high school seniors and graduates who have participated for at least two years in the national robotics competition called FIRST or For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.

The scholarship recipient will have an opportunity to complete a degree in engineering while working alongside engineers at the shipyard.

The shipyard will select the best qualified recipient with the help of state government and Department of Education officials.
