Project Lead the Way

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a non-profit organization that empowers students in grades K – 12 with in-demand, transportable skills. NEIT has partnered with PLTW to offer advanced course credits – and annual scholarship support – in several of our Engineering and Information Technology programs for students from PLTW-participating high schools across the nation who meet the necessary technical skills and competencies.

You can earn credit for classes you may have taken at your high school, which can reduce both the cost of tuition and the amount of time spent in earning your degree from New England Tech. In addition to offering eligible students advanced course credits, NEIT will provide up to a $3,000 scholarship per year to those PLTW students who meet the established academic requirements. Check if your school participates in PLTW and start accelerating the life you want tomorrow, today.
