Merit Scholarships

We offer two kinds of scholarships for students admitted to the MIT Internet of Things Bootcamp: merit based scholarships and the scholarship challenge.

Every student that applies to the MIT Internet of Things Bootcamp will be considered for a merit based scholarship, in the form of some full and partial scholarships. Scholarships are based on the how each candidate ranks on the following five criteria:

  • Focus on excellence

If you apply and are admitted to the MIT Internet of Things Bootcamp, we will notify you if your application qualifies for a scholarship.
