What is the FIRST Dean’s List Award?

In an effort to recognize the leadership and dedication of FIRST’s most outstanding secondary school students, the Kamen family sponsors awards for selected 10th or 11th grade* students known as the FIRST Robotics Competition® and the FIRST Tech Challenge FIRST Dean’s List Award. Since its introduction in 2010, the FIRST Dean’s List Award has attracted the attention of prestigious colleges and universities who desire to recruit FIRST Dean’s List students.

Similar to the very prestigious National Merit Scholarship Award, there are three (3) levels of FIRST Dean’s List Award students.

  • FIRST Dean’s List Semi-finalists – comprised of the two (2) students in their 10th or 11th school year* nominated by each team.
  • FIRST Dean’s List Finalists - comprised of the two (2) students selected at each FIRST Robotics Competition Regional or FIRST Robotics Competition District Championship (the Qualifying Events).
    • Note: At FIRST Robotics Competition District Championships, more than two (2) students may be selected, depending on the size of the district.
  • FIRST Dean’s List Winners - comprised of the ten (10) FIRST Robotics Competition and ten (10) FIRST Tech Challenge students selected from the applicable FIRST Dean’s List Finalists at the FIRST Championship.

Each team is invited to select up to two (2) students who are in the 10th or 11th grade (sophomores or juniors) as FIRST Dean's List Semi-Finalists. The students who earn FIRST Dean’s List Award status as a Semi-Finalists, Finalist or Winner, are great examples of student leaders who have led their Teams and communities to increased awareness for FIRST and its mission. These students have also achieved personal technical expertise and accomplishment. It is the intention of FIRST that these individuals will continue on, post-Award, as great leaders, student alumni, and advocates of FIRST.

Prestigious colleges have expressed great interest in meeting FIRST Dean’s List’s Award winners and FIRST hopes that each Team will take advantage of the opportunity to nominate the most qualified students as FIRST Dean’s List Nominees!

Students are nominated by their team mentors. Celebrate your Team's top 1 or 2 student leaders by nomination them for the FIRST Dean's List Award. Details available on the Awards page. Additional resources can be found here.
