Our Mission

The Lincoln Foundation for Education, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2016, has a mission to make post-secondary vocational education opportunities more accessible for students of Lincoln Tech and other similar institutions through the awarding of scholarship grants. The ultimate objective is to provide industry and community organizations who wish to support both the growth of individuals and the development of a qualified workforce, the ability to contribute aid to promising students who do not have sufficient financial resources, to attend or graduate from a post-secondary vocational institution in a timely manner with minimal educational debt.

The Foundation sees higher education as a catalyst, an agent of change for individuals, families, communities, and local economies. We envision a community that recognizes the importance of educational attainment and assures positive outcomes are accessible to all regardless of economic circumstance.
