FIRST® LEGO® League Grant Program
The FIRST® LEGO® League Grant Program places a special emphasis on teams who have not yet participated in FIRST LEGO League competitions.
- New teams can receive up to $500 to offset costs associated with FIRST LEGO League activities. Existing teams can receive up to $250 to offset costs associated with FIRST® LEGO® League activities.
- There are no restrictions on how teams may use their grant funds. It can go toward covering the costs of challenge materials, travel expenses, team t-shirts, or anything else the team may need.
