One of the ways that our sponsors provide support is by allocating funds to support teams that we serve. Rockwell Collins provides funding to Maryland and Washington, DC FIRST Tech Challenge to make competing in events accessible for as many teams as possible. Each year, we award 20 teams partial, and sometimes full discounts for participating in FTC qualifying events.

Teams apply through an online form. Applications are reviewed by staff, volunteers, and/or sponsor representatives.
