Apple Grant Process

Hello, I represent a rookie robotics team that is just starting up this year in the Silicon Valley. We need to raise another $2K to register in the FRC competition. One of our registered mentors is an Apple employee. What would be the best way to go about securing the Apple grant?

Re: Apple Grant Process

Is it open to other non-apple affiliated teams?

From what I have heard it is mostly for Silicon Valley teams with mentors who are employed by Apple, but I could be wrong.

This is correct, with very few exceptions.

The grant is open to any team with an Apple employee who mentors. Location does not matter.

If they are an Apple employee with an Apple email than they should count.

Here’s the requirement from the grant itself:
All teams applying for this grant must have an identified eligible Apple employee* as a coach or mentor during the 2017-18 season. *Both full-time and part-time employees are eligible to request a grant for the team. You must be able to provide the Name, Apple email address, and the HR LOB for this employee.

Re: Apple Grant Process

Anyone have a link for the actual grant? We have two Apple employees willing to fill it out but don't know the process.

Re: Apple Grant Process

Once you get the Apple Grant, please note Apple does not want recognition. Which means don't put their logo on things.

Also, if I recall correctly, do not place their name as a sponsor in any locations.

Here's the quote from FRC Grants.

Quote:
Great question and thank you for asking! Apple actually does not want teams to acknowledge them. Your team is more than welcome to send a thank you (if you would like) to Headquarters and we can ensure it reaches them on your behalf but you do not need to put their logo or anything on tshirts, robots, etc. You are welcome to put anonymous if you would like to!
