Servocity Grant

Currently members of each FTC team are working on their Servocity Grant application essays. This grant provides twenty FTC teams with $500 in Actobotics parts, making it a great opportunity to attain funding. While the grant is not due until September 30th Ammar, Annette, Robert, and Rohan are working on the essays this summer in order to have ample time to revise them before they are submitted
