Robotics Grants

We believe in the power of robotics. Students are introduced to science, technology, engineering and math STEM programs in a fun and interactive way. Robotics stimulates critical thinking, creativity and collaboration skills important for careers now and in the future. To request funding for a team, please provide a letter on school or organization letterhead.

Provide:

  • Budget
  • Students served
  • Indicate how many competitions you will enter
  • Are you a rookie or mature team
  • List adults who will coach and mentor your team

You must also provide a W-9 with the name, address and federal tax ID number of the entity that will manage your funds. Scan materials and email to Maureen.Wilt@FPL.com. In the subject line write Request for Robotics Funding.

FIRST Alumni Scholarship

The NextEra Energy Foundation is proud to announce a scholarship opportunity to reward FIRST® students whose experience has inspired their interest in an engineering or information management career. One $5,000, renewable scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior who has two or more years in an FTC or FRC program in FPL’s service area. The students must be accepted to an accredited four-year college or university majoring in either engineering or information technology.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 is required to apply and students must maintain a 3.0 GPA to renew each year.

The application will be available by early December and close by the end of February, 2016.

Science Fairs

Science fairs are a great way to inspire young minds and future scientists. We support only district-wide science fairs with categories of energy or engineering. If your district would like to be considered for a science fair grant, send the appropriate paperwork to Maureen.Wilt@FPL.com.

Due to the number of schools in our service area, we cannot provide grants or support to individual schools for their science fair activities.
