FIRST Robotics Competition Grants

What is FIRST Robotics Competition?

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, we call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it "the hardest fun you'll ever have."

2020 Wheels on Carpet Voucher

Teams who didn't participate in an official event in the 2020 season are eligible for a $1000 Wheels on Carpet voucher in either the 2021 or 2022 season. Teams are required to select which season this voucher is used prior to the receipt of their Kickoff Kit. Teams eligible for this will receive communication from FIRST HQ; these teams will be required to respond with their preference on which season the voucher will be used. Teams who do not respond to this communication will automatically have the 2020 Wheels on Carpet voucher credited to the 2022 season.


Thank You Notes
It’s never too early to thank the folks who support FIRST, even if they do not yet directly sponsor your team. All teams and participants benefit from the generous support of our partners. Plus, gratitude can go a long way toward building a bond with a potential sponsor or supporter. In the spirit of Gracious Professionalism®, please send thank you notes, tokens of appreciation, and other correspondence to FIRST HQ, Attn: Team Grants, 200 Bedford Street, Manchester, NH 03101. We thank you for letting FIRST supporters know that they are truly appreciated and encouraging them to continue to support the FIRST mission.
