We are excited to announce the DoD STEM FIRST grants call is now open for the 2018-2019 season. Please read the attachment before responding. This provides details for what is covered by the grant for rookie and veteran teams in each league. All other requirements are documented in the attachment.
After reading the attachment, click the link below to submit information about your team. Rookie teams should get a temporary team number from TIMS. You may edit information online for your team anytime up to the deadline on 20 June.
I will be monitoring your submissions online. If I see anything amiss, I will contact you by email. However, everything will be locked at 1200ET (noon) on 20 June. After that, if information is missing, it may or may not be corrected in time for me to submit it to DoD STEM. So, please don’t wait until the last minute.
You are welcome to forward this email to anyone who may qualify. If you are not the primary contact, please coordinate so there is only one entry per team.
To submit your team for the grant, click the following link and enter the required information. You may edit your submission any time before it closes.
If you have questions, please email me. I’m not at my desk much. Again, deadline is 1200ET (noon) Wed 20 Jun 2018.
