FIRST is excited to announce our need-based FIRST Tech Challenge Jump Start Grant for teams participating in the 2018-2019 FIRST Tech Challenge Season!

This funding is only available to newly created teams that have not yet paid for registration. Those interested in applying for the need-based Jump Start grant should create a new FIRST Tech Challenge team to obtain a 9-digit temporary team number before applying for this grant. Awarded new teams will receive a $275 registration grant to cover the full cost of the FIRST Tech Challenge season registration and a $275 product grant to be used in the FIRST Tech Challenge Storefront to purchase product.
