LEGO Foundation Grant
This grant is available to rookie FTC teams with at least one FLL graduate and provides $100 per FLL graduate, up to $300 max per team, towards an FTC Competition Kit (with or without MINDSTORMS) at FTCrobots.com.
To be eligible, your team must meet the following criteria:
- You must register and pay for their 2012-2013 FTC season.
- Have a valid rookie team number.
- At least one member of your team must have participated in FLL in one of the last four FLL seasons.
Once these criteria are met, you will gain access to FTCrobots.com via the FIRST Team Information Management System. Once on the website, follow the instructions provided there. This grant is administered by LEGO Education North America.
Teams may apply for one or both of these grants. The FIRST Graduation Grant and the LEGO Foundation Grant are available on a first-come, first-served basis to U.S. teams.
