Grants to USA, Canada, and International high school student teams to register for a robotics competition. Teams must be registered to the event before the grant can be applied. Funding is intended to support newly formed teams and eligible teams with experienced participants in a competition to design industrial-sized robots that engage in a game against similar opponents.
FIRST® is excited to announce a funding opportunity exclusively available to FIRST® Robotics Competition Rookie Teams and New Veteran Teams participating in the 2020 season.
Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
By submitting this application on behalf of your FIRST Robotics Competition team, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the terms of this grant. This includes an understanding that this grant is restricted to first event registration only and a commitment to fulfill the second-year requirement to receive the second portion of funding.
