Project Lead The Way Tuition Award

Trine University partners with Project Lead The Way (PLTW), a nonprofit organization that offers middle school and high school programs to help students learn and prepare for engineering and technology careers, to help meet the ever-increasing demand for engineers and technologists to serve today's high-tech world. The university supports Project Lead The Way through the renewable Project Lead The Way Tuition Award to students who have participated in its programs, and by awarding college credit for certain PLTW courses.
