Transforming Potential. It's a Trine thing.

Project Lead the Way

Do You Have What it Takes to Be a Future Leader?

Today’s high-tech world demands an ever growing supply of engineers and technologists. These interesting and challenging positions require higher education like we offer in Trine's Allen School of Engineering and Technology. Project Lead the Way has developed middle school and high school programs to help students learn and prepare for engineering and technology careers.

Trine recognizes and supports Project Lead the Way in their efforts to better prepare students for engineering and technology by awarding scholarships, and oftentimes college credits, to students who have participated in Project Lead the Way programs.


Project Lead The Way Tuition Scholarships 

Value: $500 annually ($250 per semester) and may be renewed for up to three years for a total value of $2,000 over four years. This scholarship may be stacked on top of other Trine University merit-based awards, but not to exceed tuition.

Renewal Criteria: must continue to pursue a Trine University engineering or technology degree and make satisfactory progress towards completing the degree.

Eligibility: must have completed minimum of (2) PLTW high school courses with grade of “B” or better in each course and provide a transcript documenting these courses from a PLTW certified high school.

Course Equivalency:
PLTW Introduction to Engineering Design equivalent to Trine Basic Technical Drawing (ETD 103)
PLTW Computer Integrated Mfg. equivalent to Trine Mfg. Materials & Processes (ETD 123)
PLTW Engineering Design & Development equivalent to Trine Middle College designation (GE113 or substitution/free elective for an introductory course to individual engineering degree programs)
