Project Lead the Way scholarships are offered to high school seniors who have already completed two PLTW courses. Students who apply to one of the University’s ABET-accredited engineering programs are automatically considered for a scholarship of at least $20,000 annually.

The University of New Haven’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Tagliatela College of Engineering are collaborating to offer a new scholarship opportunity for students who are part of Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Available to high school seniors who have already completed at least two PLTW courses and who are accepted to the Tagliatela College of Engineering for the Fall 2022 semester, the scholarship will provide recipients at least $20,000 annually.
High school seniors who apply to one of the University’s engineering programs accredited by ABET, a leading organization that accredits programs in applied and natural science, computing, and engineering and engineering technology, are automatically considered for this scholarship. Awarded in place of other traditional merit-based scholarships offered by the University, the PLTW award can be combined with need-based financial aid.
Recognized by U.S. News & World Report, the University’s accredited engineering programs include electrical and computer engineering and cybersecurity and networks. Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis to eligible students who apply by the February 15 deadline.
“This award acknowledges the advanced level of work students took on while in high school,” said Corinne Merjave, director of community outreach for the University’s Undergraduate Admissions Office. “It also demonstrates the University’s commitment in supporting these students in pursuing their degree as part of our community.”
Students completing PLTW courses through their high school can apply to receive University of New Haven college credit for eligible classes. Students meeting the requirements to receive those credits can apply them toward a variety of engineering programs at the University, and a transcript showing the University-equivalent course name and number is developed for them.
“It’s an exciting time to consider joining the University of New Haven’s Tagliatela College of Engineering,” said Caitlin Locke, director of undergraduate recruitment for the University’s Undergraduate Admissions. “Between the opening of the Bergami Center for Science, Technology, and Innovation and the launch of the Connecticut Institute of Technology, our newest Chargers benefit from state-of-the-art facilities and expansive opportunities for hands-on learning, research, and internships in cutting-edge areas of technology, cybersecurity, and engineering.”
PLTW, which offers a strong support system for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, has established educational and professional development programs in STEM, supporting a network of schools and public and private-sector partners. The University plays an important role in this network, providing a range of opportunities for pre-college as well as college students, including scholarships, research experience, and opportunities for college credit.
“Project Lead the Way allows high school students to gain an early understanding and interest in engineering and technology fields,” said Merjave. “PLTW coursework provides students with an advantage as they begin their college degree programs, having completed foundational courses and enabling them to develop a better understanding of the direction they want to focus their academic careers.”
