2020 Scholarship Application

RoboCamp@RIT offers a series of week‐long day camps that let students design, build, and program robots. The camp is enriched with mini‐projects and week‐long goals that promote teamwork and creativity. Along with the mini‐projects,
instructors teach the students some of the fundamental aspects of robotics and programming.

In response to the uncertainty caused by the ongoing COVID‐19 pandemic, RoboCamp@RIT is proud to provide a limited number of need‐based scholarships to enable students (grades 4 ‐10) to participate in the 2020 camp season. RoboCamp scholarships will be awarded to qualified applicants on a first come, first serve basis. The number of scholarships available will be determined by funding received from community sponsors. Scholarships will cover the full cost of one week of camp. Each applicant may only receive one scholarship (i.e. multiple weeks of camp for one student will not be funded through this program).
