[FTC]: Grants?

My vocational class just started a First Tech Challenge team. Are there any grants that go to FTC teams?

First, check with your local Affiliate Partner (you can find who he/she is under the Regional Contacts page on the FIRST website). He may know if there are any grants available.

Second, if there is anyone on your team who has been on an FLL team in the past 3 years, you may be eligible for an FLL->FTC graduation grant. Seethis link for details.

Nobody on our team has ever been involved in FLL. We discovered F.I.R.S.T. a little over a year ago. Our mentor has mentored a FLL team, but I am not sure how long ago. Would the mentor count?

Sorry, the mentor wouldn’t count.
