BAE Systems proudly sponsors a nation-wide annual scholarship and internship program to enhance opportunities for high school seniors that plan to seek a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The BAE Systems FIRST Scholarship Program is the latest in a long line of company support for FIRST, which began more than 25 years ago. Since then, the company has donated more than $9 million to FIRST teams and events and sponsors over 160 teams across the country.

The BAE Systems FIRST Robotics Scholarship and Internship Program grants a total of $40,000 in scholarships to eight students that are pursuing an undergraduate degree in a technology or engineering field. As part of the scholarship, students are also awarded a paid summer internship at BAE Systems. This three-month summer internship offers hands-on experience to work on projects and programs with a leading technology company.
