Qualcomm Grant Information
2018-2019 Season Information
As a worldwide sponsor of FIRST, Qualcomm has committed to continuing to provide financial support for teams located near their Austin office.
Teams must be located within the Qualcomm target area.
Teams with student team members who are underrepresented or under-served in STEM and who exhibit low socioeconomic status indicators, such as team members who reside in a household where someone qualifies for free and reduced price lunch or participation at a Title I school. Top performing and all-female or female-led teams are also a high priority.
