FIRST Robotics Competition

2008-2009 NASA Robotics Alliance Project FIRST Robotics Competition Sponsorship Grants

The NASA Robotics Alliance Project is pleased to announce the FIRST Robotics Competition participation grants for 2009. Listed below are the "Regional Challenge Grant" and "Program Growth Grant" applications that have been selected for award. Receipt of a NASA Robotics Alliance Project grant award is contingent upon a team being registered with FIRST and confirmed at the specific event for which the sponsorship applies. Regional Challenge Grants are NOT transferable to other teams or other events. Program Growth Grants may be used for any regional competition event, but they are not transferable to other teams. As indicated in the grant application, awarded funds will not be sent directly from NASA to the winning teams. The awarded funds will be transferred to FIRST on behalf of the awarded team, and used to fund the registration fees for the associated regional competition event.

As part of the grant award, NASA will cover shipping expenses for the 2009 FRC control system to be shipped to all NASA-sponsored teams prior to the season kick-off. FIRST has been requested to send the FRC control system to each grant award team, at NASA expense, unless you specifically inform NASA and FIRST that you do NOT want to receive it.

Remember, teams accepting NASA Challenge Grants and/or NASA Program Growth Grant awards are agreeing to the following critical items:
1. Complete BOTH the Entrance Survey and Exit Surveys for all team members.
2. Provide NASA with a copy of the team's Chairman's Award Submission or an equivalent document.
3. Build a robot and compete at the awarded event.
