Can a group of high school students not part of any organization fill out a grant? We have a school, but the robotics club is very tight on regulations (cannot take parts out of school, meetings short/unorganized) so we want to go on our own.
It depends what the grant requires. Many require non profit status.
As far as I know non of the RECF grants require a non-profit status. All you need to apply for a grant is a robotevents.com account and then you can apply for grants in your area. Each grant has a little bit different terms so just read through.
