Formula Student 2024 RS Build Fund

RS Grass Roots Education are proud sponsor of iMechE Formula Student and we have opened the Build Fund for the 3rd year to support the Formula Student team with hands-on technical learning product donations worth £1000 or equivalent.

We understand building a Formula Student car is neither easy nor cheap, so we are doing our part to help students around the globe realise their goals through practical experience.

The application is simple, tell us about your team, and your objectives. Tell us how you would like to use the fund, which technical skill are you developing by being part of a Formula Student team and how will our fund enable your team and your participation in the chosen competition.
