FIRST Scholarship Provider: National Fluid Power Association


With the 2022 RAPID REACTSM Kickoff on January 8th, consider using pneumatics in your robot! If you do, not only can you apply for National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) $40,000 scholarship, but we can help you find a mentor to help your team learn more about the benefits of pneumatics.

The NFPA Robotics Challenge Scholarship is a scholarship program that launched in the 2016-17 school year. In support of the mission of FIRST®, NFPA will offer one merit-based scholarship, worth $40,000 ($10,000 per year for four years), to a high school senior who participates as part of a 2022 FIRST Robotics Competition team and uses fluid power in their robot. This scholarship must be used to study engineering at any accredited technical college or university in the United States.

The goal of the NFPA Scholarship is to bring an awareness of fluid power options in robotics to high school students and to encourage the use of fluid power products in this competition.
