Maximizing Scholarship Consideration  

There are two primary steps for freshmen to maximize their consideration for Purdue scholarships. Most Purdue scholarship money is awarded to students who complete these two steps:

1. Complete your admission application by November 1.
2. File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1.

Other, smaller scholarships are awarded through supplemental scholarship applications, but if you don't meet the November 1 admission application deadline, you may not be admitted in time to meet the February 1 deadlines for these scholarship applications.
