MT Connect Student Challenge
For a more in-depth look at the MT Connect Student Challenge, check out our blog post here. The objective of the “Idea Creation” challenge is for students to identify a manufacturing intelligence need and build a business case for the proposed solution. There is also a separate competition, the “Application Development” challenge, aims for students to “create advanced manufacturing intelligence application solutions which are innovative and deployable, utilizing data acquired via the MTConnect standard.” Bright ideas are heftily rewarded— there are five prizes totaling a whopping $10,500.00

FIRST Robotic Scholarships
FIRST is another organization that is near and dear to us. We have had the pleasure of watching many students passionately purse STEM via the FIRST Robotics competition. But they also have an incredibly comprehensive list of scholarships on their website. You can sort by location, program, and grade— which gives you the most specific list of available funding. The list is seemingly endless, check it out!
