Students Can Save Thousands Of Dollars!
Wood Foundation Scholarship
Free AutoCAD
Zero-Interest Tuition Payment Plan
Deep Discounts on 3D Software
Westlawn has taken a number of strong steps designed to help lower education costs and assist students to follow their
dreams and attain their goals. These steps include the Wood Foundation scholarship and finding ways for students to ob-
tain otherwise expensive design software at low or no cost.
The Wood Foundation Scholarship
The Wood Foundation has generously sponsored a $1,500 or $1,000 scholarship (see scholarship details). The Wood
Scholarships are available (under the terms of the Wood Foundation donation) to U.S. citizens. Take advantage of this
soon! The Wood Scholarships are available to all who qualify, but only until all funds are expended
for full de-
tails of the Wood Foundation scholarship.
The Wood Foundation Scholarship effectively reduces tuition to levels last offered in the 1980s.
Westlawn offers a ZERO-INTEREST tuition payment plan
for all four modules of our professional diploma program,
Yacht & Boat Design, as well as for our short course, Elements of Technical Boat Design.

interest tuition payment.

FREE Student AutoCAD!
Westlawn has arranged for active Westlawn students to download AutoCAD online directly from Autodesk. This is a full
version of AutoCAD student release. It is not a trial version. Active Westlawn students can log into the designated sign-up
page through the Westlawn student forum.
This is the lowest cost for full AutoCAD ever—
no cost!
The commercial price of
AutoCad is $4,195, an enormous savings.
Orca3D Hull Modeling and Rhino General 3D-Modeling Software at Deep Discounts!
In addition, Westlawn has arranged with DRS C3 Advanced Technology Center for deep student discounts on the Orca3D
hull modeling plug-in software for Rhino, plus Rhino in addition, if needed.
Orca3D Level 1 (hull design and fairing with intact hydrostatics and stability) is $1,390 commercial but just $125 for
Westlawn students, a $1,265 savings!
Orca3D Level 2 (all of Level 1 plus speed/power analysis and weight and cost tracking) is $2,780 commercial but just
$250 for Westlawn students, a $2,530 savings!
Orca Level 1 is all that’s required to complete Westlawn studies, but it makes sense to take advantage of this student
discount to get Level 2, which will make your advanced work go more quickly and will serve you well in your career.
You need the general-purpose Rhino (Rhinoceros) 3D modeling program to run Orca3D. If you don’t already own Rhino,
DRS C3 Advanced Technology Center has arranged a special Westlawn discount package price for Orca3D plus Rhino, as
Orca3D Level 1 & Rhino $288 (commercial price $2,385)
Orca3D Level 1 & Rhino/Flamingo/Penguin/Bongo $558 (commercial price $3,085)
Orca3D Level 2 & Rhino $401 (commercial price $3,775)
Orca3D Level 2 & Rhino/Flamingo/Penguin/Bongo $671 (commercial price $4,475)
Savings over the full commercial prices range from $2,907 to $3,804 depending on the package!
To take advantage of these deep discounts for Westlawn, students must follow the student-purchase procedure on the
Westlawn student forum. You
be a currently active Westlawn student.
The basic CAD software required to complete Westlawn is AutoCad plus Orca3D Level 1 and Rhino. So the total cost of
the required CAD software to do all of Westlawn is just $288! This matches the lowest cost for required CAD software
