Hello Teams,

The focus of this newsletter is grants. Please help me spread the word about these grant opportunities by sharing this information freely. I don't have all of the details about the grants, however, it is important to publish what I know so that teams can make informed decisions.

2. FIRST Rookie Team Grant
3. FLL Graduation Grant
