Through the generosity of our sponsors, the REC Foundation Team Grant Program matches schools and organizations that are interested in adopting the world’s largest and fastest growing academic robotics competitions with the program resources necessary to get started. This unique program allows the REC Foundation to provide the resources needed to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
These grants are intended for schools and organizations that are not currently participating in one of our programs: VEX IQ Challenge, VEX Robotics Competition (VRC), and VEX U. VEX IQ Challenge grants are for elementary and middle schools (grades 3-8). VRC grants are for middle and high schools (grades 6-12).
The team grant application form indicates which items are covered by the available team grants and which items the school or organization is required to purchase. Your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager can provide additional information.
The VEX IQ Challenge Team Grant Bundle includes the VEX IQ Super Kit and the Competition Add-On Kit.
VRC Team Grants include the V5 Competition Starter Kit, four motors, and smart cables.
