Oregon Tech Scholarship
The Project Lead The Way Scholarship is a one-year scholarship for $2,000.
- Must be a high school student graduating from a certfied Project Lead The Way(PLTW) high school
- Must have earned a B average or higher in PLTW coursework
- Must have scored 70 percent or higher on the PLTW college credit exam
- Must be enrolling in one of Oregon Tech's B.S. Engineering, Engineering Technology, Renewable Energy Engineering or Geomatics programs.
In addition two of the following criteria must be met:
- Unweighted high school GPA of 3.3 or better
- 1100 combined SAT Critical Reading and Math Score (or 24 ACT composite) or
- Top 20% of graduating class
Depending on which major a student selects, OIT would award between 3 – 11 transfer credits towards the selected degree, from four PLTW classes completed in high school.
The scholarships are awarded only to new, fully admitted Oregon Tech students. If you are majoring in Engineering, Engineering Technology, Geomatics, or Renewable Energy Engineering and meet the academic criteria listed above, all you need to do is apply for admission to Oregon Tech and be accepted by February 1 for enrollment in the following academic year. You must meet all admission requirements in order to qualify.
The Project Lead The Way Scholarship is for one year so long as a 3.0 cumulative GPA is maintained at Oregon Tech and you remain an engineering or engineering technology major. Recipients must carry at least 15 Oregon Tech credits per term, with the exception of students enrolled at Oregon Tech's Portland-East and Portland-West campuses who may receive a prorated scholarship provided they are taking at least six credits from Oregon Tech per term, exclusive of concurrent enrollment (e.g., recipients with 6 to 14 credits will receive a half scholarship). Students attending Oregon Tech through the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program are not eligible for these scholarships. Transfer students must have at least 36 quarter hours of transferable college credit. Applicants with fewer than 36 credits are considered on the basis of their college grades, high school record and test scores.
