Starting in 2002, Drexel will offer up to eight scholarships per year - a total of $86,900 - to eligible Lincoln students participating in the universities "2-3" or "3-3" Dual Degree Program in Engineering. Lincoln students spend their first two or three years at Lincoln and then three years at Drexel. They complete their studies with a bachelor's degree Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics from Lincoln and a bachelor of science in engineering degree from Drexel. Students may study any area of engineering at Drexel, including Mechanical, Biomedical, Electrical or Chemical Engineering.
