Scholarships for MATE ROV Competition teams

MATE Inspiration for Innovation is pleased to announce an exciting new program – Scholarships for MATE ROV Competition Teams!

Scholarships for MATE ROV Competition Teams is intended to support the development of new student teams – as well as the re-development of teams impacted by the pandemic – with a focus on underserved audiences and fostering DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) in the ocean workforce talent pipeline.

In addition to SeaMATE ROV starter kits, cameras and accessories, tools, and power supplies, Scholarships for MATE ROV Competition Teams includes the opportunity for new RANGER, PIONEER, and EXPLORER class teams advancing to the MATE World Championship to apply for travel stipends to support their participation. This year’s World Championship is taking place June 20-24, 2023 at the St. Vrain Valley School District in Longmont, Colorado, USA (home of the MATE Rocky Mountain Regional ROV Competition!).

Scholarships for MATE ROV Competition Teams is funded by the Schmidt Ocean Coalition, which is part of the family of philanthropic organizations and initiatives started by Eric and Wendy Schmidt and includes Schmidt Ocean Institute, 11th Hour Racing, and Schmidt Marine Technology Partners / The Schmidt Family Foundation.
