Maximizing Scholarship Consideration
To be considered for our full range of freshman scholarships, complete these three important steps by the respective deadline:
- Complete the admission application by November 1 (including submission of all required material). All students who complete their admission application by November 1 will be automatically considered for university-wide merit scholarships.
- Submit Purdue's supplemental scholarship application* by January 1. This application is used for a small set of academic-department scholarships, which have very specific criteria (including a financial-need component for many).
- Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 1. (See more information about other Need-based scholarships and the FAFSA below.)
*The supplemental scholarship application will be available November 1 - January 1 to all students who completed their application by November 1.
