Merit Based Scholarships:

Purdue University awards most of its merit scholarships to qualified students based on academic information provided with admission applications that are complete by November 1, 2014. A complete admissions application includes all required material including ACT or SAT test score (including writing), high school transcript, and application fee. Purdue's largest merit scholarship awards are called the Trustees and Presidential scholarships (see information at University-wide scholarships).

No additional forms need to be completed for freshmen merit scholarship consideration through the School of Management. Please see below for specific instructions pertaining to scholarships with a financial need component.

Need based Scholarships:

Purdue colleges, schools, and departments award a limited number of merit scholarships with a financial need component.

We encourage all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1 in order to maximize consideration for all federal, state, and institutional funds they may be eligible to receive. The Purdue University Division of Financial Aid awards need-based scholarships to students who demonstrate certain levels of financial need and complete the FAFSA by a March 1 priority filing date.

Private Scholarships:

Many private scholarships are offered each year to college students by corporate, professional, trade, government, civic, religious, social and fraternity organizations.  See the Purdue Financial web site for more information:  http://www.purdue.edu/dfa/sandg/private.php
