Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) is excited to announce that its FPL Robotics Scholarship for 2024 is once again officially open for applicants. Designed to empower young minds and cultivate future leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), this scholarship aims to support one talented student who displays exceptional passion and potential in robotics.

We love this time of year when we get to announce that FPL’s Robotics Scholarship is once again open for qualified high school seniors,” said Sarah Marmion, FPL Senior Manager of Community Engagement and Educational Programs. Robotics presents an incredible platform for students to develop critical-thinking, problem-solving and teamwork skills, all of which are essential in today's rapidly evolving world. We believe that by supporting robotics education, we are investing in the future and cultivating the next generation of STEM leaders.

FPL offers this unique opportunity to a deserving high school senior. The scholarship will support the recipient in pursuing higher education in a STEM-related field at an accredited college or university, ensuring they receive the necessary resources to succeed in their academic journey.

“With the scholarship itself, it means I don’t have to contribute as much time to a work study, so I have more time to work on my classes. Also, it’s a financial benefit as well.” said Ahum Dhruv the 2023 winner of FPL’s FIRST Robotics Scholarship. “The scholarship allows me to use my time in other regards and I wouldn’t be able to do that without FPL.”

The FPL Robotics Scholarship is open to all public and private high school students across FPL’s service area who have two or more years in a FIRST Tech Challenge or FIRST Robotics Competition. Interested students can submit their application here or at under STEM Grants and Scholarship. The application period will be open from March 18 - May 15, 2024.
