Tuition Exchange Scholarship

 

Lawrence Tech is currently a member of the Tuition Exchange Program (www.tuitionexchange.org), a consortium of over 600 colleges and universities that offer scholarships to the dependents of faculty and staff employed at member universities. Each year, Lawrence Tech will determine a number of imports to be offered a scholarship by Lawrence Tech and the number of Lawrence Tech faculty and staff dependents that may be considered as export students from Lawrence Tech. Tuition Exchange scholarships are available for undergraduate study only.

It is important to understand the Tuition Exchange Scholarships are competitive and not guaranteed. Students are not guaranteed either admission to a member institution nor the award of a Tuition Exchange Scholarship even if the student is admitted. Each institution sets their own rules about how students are selected for a Tuition Exchange Scholarship. Many schools use academic achievement as a determining factor and determine the value of the scholarships that they award.

Also, participating Tuition Exchange schools do not have the same deadline for the last date they will receive Tuition Exchange certifications for the following fall. To ensure eligibility, it is important that the eligible parent knows each school’s deadline to request certification, as there is no guarantee that a late certification will be honored by the desired institution.
