Career Training Scholarships Help Build Hands-On Skills
For 70 years, Lincoln schools around the country have been the place for hundreds of thousands of students ready to build skills that turn their passions into their professions. More than a quarter of a million graduates have launched new careers thanks to their Lincoln Tech training. And Lincoln’s career training scholarships have helped many of those dreams get off the ground.
This year, more than $15 million has been made available to qualified students around the country with Lincoln Tech career training scholarships. Included in those scholarship opportunities are three awards that celebrate and honor former members of the Lincoln family with funding to help build brighter futures for existing students.
CAREER TRAINING SCHOLARSHIPS FOR LINCOLN TECH STUDENTS

He advanced to roles including Director at two Chicago-area schools, and then relocated to the east coast in 1984 to become Regional Vice President in 1989.
