    Statement for FIRST Robotics Scholarship*
    Please describe your participation in FIRST Robotics as well as how FIRST has helped shape your interest in STEM. Given Harvey Mudd's emphasis on collaboration rather than competition, we are interested in how your view of teamwork was affected by this experience.

    Please limit your response to 500 words.

    Note: Scholarship applications are read alongside your first-year application and not separately. Therefore, you can assume that the scholarship reader will have also read your other essays. It is not necessary to include the same information in both unless you choose to do so.
