FIRST Robotics Competition

2020 NASA Robotics Alliance Project, FIRST Robotics Competition Registration Grant

NASA's Robotics Alliance Project is pleased to announce the FIRST Robotics Competition registration grant for 2020 competition season. Receipt of a NASA Robotics Alliance Project registration grant is contingent upon a team being registered with FIRST and confirmed at the specific event for which the grant applies if applicable. All grants are not transferrable to other teams. As indicated in the grant application, awarded funds will be transferred to FIRST on behalf of the awarded team, and used to fund the registration fees for the competition event. For “Rookie” grant awards, $6,000 will be applied toward FRC registration fees for the team. For “2nd-year” and “Veteran” grant awards, $5,000 will be applied toward FRC registration fees for the team.

New for the 2020 Season is a new "portal" system that enables you to manage all the requirements of the grant in a single location. The portal system is where you submit documentation, find your unique entrance and exit survey links (and view the status of the student's submissions).

If your team was selected, you will receive an email (to the email you registered with to submit the grant application) with your details to the portal system. This email may take up to 48 hours of this grant posting to receive it. If you do not receive an email by 11/25/2019 please contact NASA.

Requirements of All NASA Grants:
All teams selected by NASA agree to the following conditions of sponsorship. Teams not complying with all sponsorship requirements will not be considered for future NASA grants and may be required to provide reimbursement of funds applied toward their team during the competition year.
  1. "NASA" MUST BE IDENTIFIED as a team sponsor and appear in the sponsored team's official name on record with FIRST. Other sponsors may be listed before or after NASA, but NASA must be included.
  2. All student team members MUST COMPLETE a brief general online survey at both the beginning and end of the season to assist NASA in assessing the impact of the program. The survey at the beginning MUST BE COMPLETED prior to the kickoff event.*
  3. Sponsored teams MUST COMPLETE and submit an annual report (aka Chairman's Award) to NASA.*
  4. We must receive a letter of support from your educational institution sponsor (school or other educational entity: 4-H, Non-Profit, Scout Troop, etc). This letter must endorse the team's desire to apply for funding, confirm the educational sponsor's commitment to the team, and agree to the conditions of sponsorship. Teams will not be required to submit this documentation until they are selected for an award.*
  5. A robot MUST BE COMPLETED and shipped to the appropriate competition.
  6. If the sponsorship is associated with a specific regional event, sponsored teams MUST ATTEND the specific event for which the sponsorship was awarded. Additionally, teams agree to attend all days of the sponsored competition.
  7. Sponsorship MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED to another team; it must be used by the original team applying for sponsorship.
