American Hero Scholarship Program
Lincoln is proud to offer the American Hero scholarship to servicemen and women who are ready to move their careers forward with training which builds on the skills that you learned in service to our country. All service members on active duty, reservists, National Guardsmen, and veterans who are eligible for tuition assistance are encouraged to apply.
Lincoln Tech’s first campus opened its doors over 75 years ago to assist returning World War II veterans with their transition into hands-on civilian careers. To this day we have kept dedication to U.S. service members at the core of everything we do. We understand the challenges that come with transferring your military skills into civilian careers, and we have dedicated staff at each campus who can help you work with your Veterans Affairs office to fund training for a new profession.
You’ve given so much in service to your country; let Lincoln give something back to you. Our schools are committed to doing everything we can to assist you as your country welcomes you home. Our hands-on, real-world training helps build upon your experience as you pursue a new career in Automotive Technology, Culinary Arts, Health Sciences, Information Technology, Skilled Trades, or Spa and Cosmetology Services.
This scholarship, offering $1,000 towards tuition, books, and fees in many of Lincoln’s industry-specific programs*, can help bring you closer toward a rewarding, fulfilling career in an industry you’ll love. Start turning your passion into a profession - apply today!
