Grant Season Already?!

Aug 29, 2023 Written by FIRST Operations Staff




Hello Rookie and New Veteran FIRST® Robotics Competition Teams! We understand the importance of fundraising to start and to sustain your team. Today we want to let our FIRST Robotics Competition teams know about the potential grant opportunities our generous sponsors have to offer. 

The New Team Grant application is now open for Rookie and New Veteran FIRST Robotics Competition teams. The grant application closes on Monday, October 29, at 11:59 p.m. ET. Selected teams will receive $4,000 towards the 2024 season registration and receive an additional $2,000 for the 2025 season. Please note that selected teams must be registered for a season event but should not pay for their registration fee before the grant is provided to be applied during checkout.

Teams can learn about more of grant opportunities available by visiting the Team Grant Opportunities page. The Fundraising Toolkit and Fundraising 101 page have more fundraising and donor stewardship best practices from other teams.
