Oregon FIRST Robotics Grant
Oregon FIRST Robotics Grant application period is now open, and closes on June 13, 2014.

FIRST is an international program with the stated mission to:

"...inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership."

The Oregon FIRST Robotics Grant supports this mission through a competitive grant managed by the Oregon Department of Education and funded by the 2013 Oregon Legislature. The purpose of this grant is to:
  • Increase the number of students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) related careers.
  • Elevate community involvement through mentorship and sponsorship of FIRST teams.
  • increase the opportunities for students in Oregon middle schools and high schools to participate in FIRST programs with a focus on underserved students and rural communities.
