Additional grant opportunities will be posted throughout the season as they become available.
Texas Workforce Commission (TWC)
The Texas Workforce Commission grant serves as an opportunity to help develop new high school aged teams in the State of Texas. In particular, we are looking for teams coming from under-served or financially limited communities, or teams who reside in communities where FIRST® Robotics is not as well established.
The Dell grant is aimed at serving teams in financial need and underrepresented students (females and/or minorities). Dell is looking to provide financial support to those teams who prove that they need it, and prove that they can use this grant to make a difference in their communities.
San Antonio Manufacturers Association (SAMA)
The SAMA Grant is focused on supporting FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams located in the following school districts: Edgewood ISD, Harlandale ISD, San Antonio ISD, South San Antonio ISD, and Southwest ISD.
Texas Active Rookie Partnership (TARP) Grant
This grant is designed to assist with team development in the state of Texas by asking Veteran FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) teams to identify and mentor new Rookie FIRST Robotics Competition teams in their area.
Grants not Administered by FIRST® in Texas
Additional grants are available through other sources outside of FIRST® in Texas, including national grants from FIRST® and corporate grants.
