FIRST® teams (Jr.FLL/FLL/FTC/FRC) with a Ford employee mentor can apply for Ford team grants at ford.avature.net/STEM. Please refer to the site for details.
To be eligible, teams must have a Ford employee as an active mentor. Only one team grant is available for each team. Note that the application must be made by a non-Ford employee requester.
The grant application is a two-step process.
STEP 1: The requester (non-Ford employee) should register and provide preliminary data related to the request. Once Ford Motor Company reviews this information, and determines the request meets selection criteria, the submitter is invited to STEP 2.
STEP 2: The full team grant application is submitted.
The submission deadline for STEP 2 is Oct. 30, 2015.
