The main requirement for winning the scholarship is for students to write an essay that explores how drones are changing the world for the better.
The essay topics range from how drones can be used for good, to the use of drones in STEM education, to how drones will change our world over the next ten years.
As technology improves and drones get less and less expensive, we’re seeing a proliferation of different niche applications, from uses in agriculture, mining, surveying, fire fighting, and much, much more.
UAV Coach wants to hear from thoughtful college students inspired by drone technology from all walks of life—when they think about the possibilities and the future of the drone industry, what do they imagine?
UAV Coach has always been first and foremost about education. This college scholarship, along with the high school scholarship we launched last year, fit perfectly into our mission of providing training and resources to the drone industry.
We’re thrilled to be supporting young people in pursuing their educational goals while also helping to push the drone industry forward. • Alan Perlman, CEO and Co-Founder of UAV Coach Eligibility requirements for UAV Coach’s college scholarship are simple.
