Purdue Scholarships 2015-16

Important Deadlines

November 1 - Merit Scholarships

Purdue University awards most of its merit scholarships to qualified freshmen based on academic information provided with complete admission applications.

February 1 - Purdue Scholarship Application

Purdue colleges, schools, and departments award a limited number of scholarships that have very specific criteria, including a financial–need component. Students must apply for admission by November 1 to guarantee an admission decision in time to meet the February 1 scholarship application deadline.

The Purdue Scholarship Application will be available here after admission decisions are released in December. There are other Purdue scholarships that require a separate application with a February 1 due date.

March 1 - FAFSA

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 March 1.

Purdue College, School, and Department Scholarship Information

If you submit a Purdue Scholarship Application, the college/school that you are admitted to will notify you of any award selections in the spring. Additionally, admitted students will be able to view any award selections on the financial aid notice sent via mail to freshmen and available online on the myPurdue site in mid March. Note that if you are not selected for a college/school need-based award you will not receive any special notification.
