Fast-Track Your Future
Ready to build on the skills you've learned at your CTC/CTE? Penn College is the place to make it happen.
Take advantage of scholarships
Scholarships can make a huge difference when it comes to offsetting your educational costs. Thanks to your technical background, you'll be off to a solid start.
Just for graduating from a state-approved* CTE program, you'll earn a $2,000 annual scholarship. The award renews for up to two years for an associate's and up to four for a bachelor's. (For Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Connecticut residents)
Penn College Scholarships
In addition to the one you can get for graduating from your CTC/CTE, you also can put your name in the running for 350+ Penn College scholarships. (All students)
"I had an advantage coming to Penn College after my CTE, because I was able to get 12 credits and earn advanced placement. I also received the Career & Technical Education Scholarship. Plus, I plan to graduate one semester ahead of schedule with two degrees!"
