The Landing School announced the development of a merit-based scholarship aimed at students who excel at working with their hands.

The Imagination, Initiative, Invention (I3) Scholarship is a competitive scholarship that is awarded based on a student’s ability to illustrate creative skill by building an object of their choice.

The Arundel, Maine-based school is a place where students come to build with their hands. By using imagination, initiative and invention, students can win one of three $5,000 scholarships. The school said that what students build is entirely up to them. It can literally be anything and does not have to be marine-related.

“This scholarship is one that truly reflects the kinds of students who come to The Landing School,” Landing School president Richard Schuhmann said in a statement. “Our students are creative and inventive and love working with their hands. But attending college can be a strain financially. We need to help prospective students fund their education. So why not do that by giving them a chance to show us their imagination, initiative and invention? They get a chance to show us their passion while potentially earning $5,000 toward their education and we get a chance to learn more about our students and their dedication to their craft.”
