SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – A new scholarship competition at Lawrence Technological University will award up to 100 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 a year for four years to Michigan high school juniors and seniors.

The scholarships can be added to other Lawrence Tech academic scholarships for which students may qualify.

The competition begins with an essay contest. Students can write up to 1,200 words on the following topic: “Are there fundamental shifts in ideals in business, industry, and society that need to take place to enable a sustainable future, or can goals for a sustainable environment be effectively implemented within traditional ideologies?”

The essays must be submitted by email to by Friday, Feb. 10.

Up to 100 students who enter the essay contest will win a four-year scholarship to Lawrence Tech.

The second round of the competition will determine how large the scholarship will be for each student. The essay contest winners will come to Lawrence Tech’s campus in Southfield on Saturday, Feb. 25, to take a 90-minute written test.

Every student who completes the written test will receive a four-year scholarship of at least $1,000 a year. Many students will win bigger scholarships by scoring well on the written exam. Students with the best scores will win annual scholarships of $4,000 for four years.
