Corporate Partners Program
Capitol Technology University’s Corporate Partners program was established to encourage and facilitate strategic and close relationships between business and civic organizations and Capitol Technology University, and to provide opportunities for open and substantive demonstrations of support.
Such support could include annual grants, annual or endowed scholarships, major gifts, sponsorships, internships, cooperative education programs, lab and facilities support, and gifts-in-kind of equipment and software.
Capitol Technology University is a special place. Your gifts support:

- Capitol Technology University is majority minority. 64% of our undergraduate students are of a racial or ethnic minority; 31% of our students are African-American. 20% of our students are female.
- A third of our students are first-generation; meaning they are the first in their family to attend an institution of higher education.
- 57% of our students are local to the Baltimore-Washington Corridor, and a high percentage stay local upon graduation, helping to stem the “brain drain”. Your interns have a high likelihood of becoming your employees.
Our commitment to our students includes a five-year tuition lock, and a job guarantee upon graduation, in addition to a high quality education focused on practical application.
Our partners are given special access to students, faculty, staff, facilities, academic programs, and professional services.
