PLTW College and University Partners

Through Project Lead The Way, students develop technical knowledge as well as problem-solving, process-thinking, communication, and professional skills. Bringing these skills to their college or university experience, PLTW students are more prepared for postsecondary studies and more likely to consider majors and careers in STEM fields. We are proud to bring together a network of colleges and universities interested in recruiting and providing opportunities to PLTW students.

To become a PLTW University and College Partner, institutions provide one or more of the following opportunities to PLTW students:

  • Annual scholarship opportunities
  • Admission-related benefits (e.g. out-of-state tuition waiver, preferential admission, etc.)
  • Credit opportunities (Dual, Articulated, Transcripted, Concurrent, etc.)
  • University-level certificates or credentials

In partnering with PLTW, University and College Partners receive a number of benefits including:

  • Involvement in a national community of schools, companies, and other organizations looking to empower students to take on global and local challenges and thrive
  • Promotion of the university and related student opportunities on PLTW’s website, network portal, and at teacher training events
  • Opportunities to host or sponsor student competitions or to connect with PLTW schools 
  • Recognition in select PLTW-sponsored communications, events, and conferences
  • Exclusive opportunities for faculty to serve as advisors, participate in research studies, or engage in speaking opportunities
