Scholarships and Fellowships

Scholarships and fellowships allow Purdue to attract top achievers and provide opportunity to students with financial need.

Our aim is to create a highly challenging and diverse environment — one that mirrors today's global society and workplace — through scholarships and fellowships that:

  • Attract and reward students with exceptional academic abilities.
  • Provide motivation and opportunity for 92 new students each year, representing each county in Indiana, who might not otherwise consider attending the Purdue.
  • Attract and reward minority doctoral students planning to pursue careers as professors of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.
  • Support student-athletes in their quest to excel in athletic competition as well as in the classroom.
  • Assist students performing with Purdue Musical Organizations and University Bands as they become well-rounded leaders.
  • Challenge student leaders and further develop their leadership abilities.
  • Advance the human and intellectual diversity of Purdue’s student population.

Access & Success Campaign

Several scholarship and program initiatives have been created through our Access & Success campaign, which hopes to assist more students than ever with its goal to raise $304 million.
