All About the Class of 2021 HS Scholarship
The Lincoln Technical Institute (LTI) Annual Scholarship Award Program is for High School Seniors graduating in 2021. The student must be in good standing with their high school at graduation and must earn a high school diploma in order to take advantage of any award money. A preliminary scholarship competition is conducted in the form of aptitude assessment. On the basis of your results, semifinalists are selected and invited to submit a portfolio.
The top twenty semi-finalists with portfolios will be recognized. Semi-Finalists will return for an interview conducted by the scholarship committee comprised of volunteers representing business, industry, education and/or government not affiliated with LTI. This committee will evaluate each candidate on the basis of preliminary results, professionalism, enthusiasm, personal conduct, and oral expression.
LTI will award a $1,000 scholarship to selected 2021 high school seniors who score between
39 and 46 on the scholarship aptitude assessment. A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to those selected 2021 high school seniors who score between 47 and 55 on the scholarship aptitude assessment.
Students can only receive one scholarship through this program. Students will not be able to combine scholarships awarded in the testing portion, semi-finalist, and finalist portion.
The twenty finalists will be interviewed by the scholarship committee by June 1, 2021 and each finalist will be awarded only one of the following based on his/her performance: a $15,000 scholarship (1 available), $10,000 scholarships (9 available), $5,000 scholarships (3 available), and $4,000 scholarships (7 available).
The student must prepare a one page essay of no less than 300 words on why they wish to attend Lincoln Technical Institute. In addition, they will need to submit three letters of recommendation which highlight their character, work ethic, and passion for the industry. These letters may be from a teacher, counselor, employer, community leader, or professional friend. Family members may not be used as a reference. The portfolios will be judged on professionalism, presentation, and content by an independent individual, with the top 20 portfolio scores chosen as a finalist.
Portfolio deadline is May 15, 2021. No late portfolios will be considered.
