Lakeshore Technical College

CLEVELAND — Lakeshore Technical College recently received a $2.87 million grant, the largest in the college’s history.

The grant was secured through the United States Department of Education and is the largest amount awarded in Wisconsin and among the largest awarded in the country. Funds will be used to address gaps created by the onset of the novel coronavirus at LTC and in the local K-12 system. 

“Our college’s faculty and staff have all gone above and beyond to meet student and community needs during this pandemic,” said LTC President Dr. Paul Carlsen. “Being awarded the largest competitive grant in the college’s history is a direct reflection of their hard work and mission focus.”

The grant funding is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education. The entire cost of the program is $2,873,887 and will be financed through the federal grant. 

Approximately 800 students graduate from Lakeshore Technical College each year. In addition to the Cleveland campus, LTC serves students in Manitowoc and Sheboygan. To learn more about the degrees and programs offered at LTC, visit
