FIRST Robotics Grant Program

In 2015, the Monsanto Fund announced a new FIRST Robotics Grant Program to support educational robotics in communities where Monsanto employees live and work. The nationwide program seeks to inspire and nurture students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math. Monsanto Fund’s grant program is open to both first-year and veteran teams competing in FIRST Regional Competitions (FRC) and FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) tournaments.

The Monsanto Fund’s FIRST Robotics Grant Program is open to FTC and FRC teams for 6th through 12th grade students. Teams that demonstrate diversity receive higher priority. Applications are accepted on an annual basis, from August 15 to September 15. Hawaii-based teams interested in applying for this grant program, please contact us for application instructions at
