In 2018-19, FIRST teams in British Columbia have access to a variety of grant opportunities. Some grants could help with paying registration fees, others are for equipment such as EV3 kits, WeDos or laptops.
Some grants will be based on a specific criteria set by the sponsor, other grants are more open ended. The forms linked to below collect the information we need to allocate the grants. By completing our application your team will be reviewed for eligibility for all grants and considered for all grants for which your team is eligible. A more complete application will result in a better chance of receiving a grant.
All of the information collected in our application is relevant to the targets or goals of one or more of our grantors. Data collected in our application may be used in connection with grant reporting. Summary data could be used in newsletters, websites and marketing materials associated with FIRST British Columbia. At no time will student identifiable information be released or published.
The grant application will stay open as long as there are grants available. However, your chances of receiving a grant increase if the form is completed by August 31, 2018.
Please complete the form for the program of your choice. If you work with multiple teams, please complete a new application for each team.
