Grants to start or maintain a FIRST robotics team is always worth taking time to look into. We hope that teams are self-sustainable through normal funding, but we know that sometimes you need to prove the success of the program to others or just need a little bit of help to participate in FIRST.

This list is not official and is just the grant opportunities we have found and wanted to make sure we posted them publicly for all to take advantage of. We do not know anything specific about the sources of these grants other than they indicated to support FIRST teams.
