Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility has extended the application deadline for 10 awards of $2,000 for students interested and active in robotics. The new deadline is June 10.
The intent is for these awards to recognize local high school students who have demonstrated dedication to science/technology/engineering/mathematics (STEM) activities. These awards are funded by the National Defense Education Program (NDEP).
To be eligible for the STEM awards, applicants must be a resident of the state of Hawaii; a current high school (public, private or home-schooled) student in good academic standing; and able to provide proof of active participation in Hawaii’s annual FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) for at least one full academic year.
The official application form, which includes details on an essay requirement and required letters of recommendation, must be submitted in time to meet the new June 10 submission deadline. Interested students should contact Eric Petran at 473-8000, ext. 2560, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the application form and details of the submission criteria.
The 10 STEM award winners will be announced in late June or early July.
