    Summary

    Through the generosity of many REC Foundation sponsors, The REC Foundation Team Grant Program seeks to match schools and organizations that are interested in adopting the worlds largest and fastest growing academic robotics competitions (VEX IQ Challenge, VEX Robotics Competition, and VEX U) with the program resources necessary to get started. It is the foundation's goal to inspire students to pursue STEM degrees and careers. 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 7-12).
