Dronethusiast $500 Women in Science UAV Scholarship

There's a $500 scholarship available to High School girls click [here for more info.]

As a website that puts a very high level of regard on issues regarding science, we understand better than almost anyone that the younger generations who will soon be entering college are one of the most important resources we have. As college costs have risen by more than 1000% since the 1980’s, even the best and brightest in America feel as if they may not have all of the resources necessary to pay for college.

Even if some scholarships and financial aid are achieved, there are other impending costs such as books, housing, and supplies that add up so fast it makes new students’ heads spin. When a gifted mind is pulled in many directions by the stresses of making ends meet, it is distracted from the learning and productivity it is capable of!

That’s why we here are Dronenthusiast are happy to give back to female students who are choosing to pursue science. We have already documented just how important drones can be when it comes to operations such as search and rescue, geography and mapping, along with having some good leisure time flying with friends.

We felt that truly doing our part includes offering a $500 scholarship for a college-bound individual, and they just have to write an impressive essay at the attention of our staff. The deadline is Dec. 1st of every year, and 1 winner will be chosen by Jan. 1st.
