Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be repaid. Competition for scholarships is high, so it is important to start as early as possible when identifying funding sources. There are three main sources to consider – Krannert, Purdue, and external sources.
Krannert School of Management
The Krannert School of Management offers a number of scholarships to students each year. Applicants who are offered admission to the Executive MBA programs are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships, namely the Dean's Scholarship and the Boilermaker Scholarship for Purdue alumni.
There are no additional forms to complete, however, you can indicate financial constraints in the essay portion of your application.
Scholarship decisions are made based on a complete review of the applicant as well as the interview. As scholarships are provided on a rolling basis, it is to your advantage to apply as early as possible, while funds are still available.
Partial tuition remission is available for Purdue faculty and staff.
Questions regarding the Dean's Scholarships and Boilermaker Scholarships should be directed to the executive director of Krannert Executive Education Programs, Aldas Kriauciunas, at email@example.com.
Through the University you may apply for several general scholarships for graduate students that are awarded by the University and related sources. A database of funding opportunities and other helpful information can be found on the Graduate School website.
These opportunities generally have one or more specific eligibility criteria – race, ethnicity, academic excellence, interest in particular fields of study, and so on. Find private scholarship resources here.
