Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) Early College High School Supplemental School System Grant FY2024


The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) provides non-competitive grants to Maryland local education agencies (LEAs) with Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) programs. Many aspects of the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future are exemplified in P-TECH as the goal of P-TECH is to provide wrap-around support services to economically disadvantaged students that result in students receiving their high school diploma, a two-year associate degree, and receiving first-in-line consideration for employment with a partnering P-TECH company.

The purpose of this grant is to support the implementation and growth of P-TECH. The supplemental grant is only for LEAs with eligible P-TECH sites. The funds may be used for the cost of tuition, fees, course materials, transportation to college classes, and support services for students enrolled in this early college program.
