Developmental Grant Program

Thanks to generous community sponsorships we are able to provide grants to FIRST Lego League Jr., FIRST Lego League and FIRST Tech Challenge teams in Boone, Stephenson and Winnebago counties. Grants will be filled on a first come first serve basis until all allocated funds are distributed annually. Grant funds will be distributed as unrestricted grant funds through the FIRST national dashboard.

In 2017-2018 FIRST Lego League Jr. teams are eligible for $125, FIRST Lego League teams are eligible for $ 450 and FIRST Tech Challenge teams are eligible for $ 875. Teams accepting these funds are required to participate in at least one FIRST competition/event and indicate R2OC as a sponsor on all team materials. An R2OC logo will be provided upon receipt of the grant funds. Grants for rookie teams will be open on July 1, 2017. Returning FIRST teams may begin applying on August 1, 2017. Grants will remain open until funds are completely distributed or until September 15, 2017, whichever comes first.
