DoD Grant Money

So my team received 2.5k from the DoD. Thing is, I have no clue how we got this. Anyone know how?

Re: DoD Grant Money

Someone on your team probably applied for the DoD STEM grant?
They just sent an email today confirming it with all team contacts. Check with your mentors/teachers/admin/etc.

Re: DoD Grant Money

We also received a DoD STEM Grant but we know we got ours. My understanding of how the process works is any DoD employee can submit for a grant on behalf a team. So, if there's a DoD facility in your area chances are someone there just put your team in for the grant.

Re: DoD Grant Money

Think I can like contact DoD to see who filed it? Even the school advisors for the team had no knowledge about it.

I would consider contacting FIRST about this. They may be able to shed some light on the situation or at least provide some contact information.

Re: DoD Grant Money

I would consider starting by asking everyone on the team - if a student has a parent that could have applied for it, that may be what happened.

Re: DoD Grant Money

First, I'd check to see if there's a mentor who works for DoD and ask there.

Re: DoD Grant Money

Any employee of the 81 DoD laboratories listed on the DoD STEM website can apply for a DoD STEM grant. The applications were due back in June, and require listing points of contact at the school. So whoever submitted your application was indeed in contact with your mentors and/or the school at some point. DoD STEM mentors are expected to be active participants with your team, although perhaps not full-time mentors. Check around your mentor group to find out who works at a DoD laboratory.

FIRST will not have the information regarding which DoD employee submitted your application.

How does the grant receipt in your account read? Is it showing that the money is a Restricted grant from DoD STEM? Or is it showing it as a credit card payment from an individual working with nCASE?

The restricted one from DoD STEM (i think STEM definitely the restricted from DoD though)

Re: DoD Grant Money

Last year we received $7000. It was allocated to be the same again, however, it changed due to the increase no. of teams being supported. As noted in this thread, its $2500 for this season.

Re: DoD Grant Money

They were an 8-year-or-so sponsor of ours. Dumped us this year with no explanation given and no response to email queries about it. We had a really good relationship with their former local representative but they retired this year and its been interesting. Now we’re scrambling to raise funds to we can pay our entry fees which are due in a couple of weeks. Ugh.

I would assume that your former local representative retiring had something to do with you no longer receiving the support.
I have a former student, team mentor and current engineer who works for Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard that allows us to receive the support.
