"The students who earn FIRST Dean's List status as a finalist will not only be great examples of current student leaders who have led their teams and communities to increased awareness for FIRST and its mission, while achieving personal technical expertise and accomplishment. The goal of FIRST is that recipients of this award will continue on as active alumni of the program. Since its introduction in 2010, the FIRST Dean's List Award has attracted the attention of prestigious colleges and universities who desire to have FIRST Dean's List students apply for admissions."
