Lehigh Career & Technical Institute students are eligible for a host of college scholarships and grants varying in value from hundreds to thousands of dollars offered by a variety of local, state and national businesses and organizations as well as individuals from the Lehigh Valley or Pennsylvania that support career and technical education.

Many of the scholarships are awarded based on merit and need. In some cases, the scholarships target students who plan to pursue careers in specific fields. Others are contest-based scholarships.
