STEM Grants

NHRL will award $1,000,000 to a selection of STEM charities chosen by members of our community.

Coinciding with the NHRL World Championships Tournament on December 17, 2022, the winner of each of the three weight classes will get to award the STEM charity of their choice with a donation of $250,000. An additional $250,000 will be split equally and donated to the charities selected by the remaining finalists, meaning every Championships qualifier who shows up to fight on December 17 will walk away with at least $5,000 to donate to a charity doing great work in STEM.

Each builder who qualifies for the World Championships will be contacted during the week of November 14 with additional information about this program. Builders must submit their preferred charity to NHRL for approval by December 1, 2022. Organizations must be a 501(c)(3) in good standing (not a 501(c)(4) or an individual), must be STEM-oriented, and cannot be based outside the U.S., be religious in nature, or government-affiliated. In order to receive the donation, qualifying builders must compete at the World Championships on December 17. Donations will be made to each approved organization by December 31, 2022.

If you have questions about this program, please contact Kelly Biderman.
