Welcome to NISO
the National & International Scholarships Office
NISO supports current Purdue undergraduate students and, in some cases (such as the Fulbright U.S. Student Program), recent graduates and current graduate students. We encourage and assist students with excellent academic records—including but not limited to Honors College students—to apply for prestigious, highly competitive and selective national and international awards. These awards allow students to pursue a wide range of opportunities within the U.S. and around the globe including study abroad, undergraduate and graduate studies, research, and teaching assistantships. Our office is housed in Honors College and collaborates with all Purdue faculty and staff to identify and support potential scholars early in their undergraduate career.
Our office provides a variety of advising resources to help students assess their scholarship potential, understand the application process, and learn to prepare a great application.
We encourage you to browse through our website for more information on specific awards. Access our Scholarships and Fellowships page to learn about a wide variety of external scholarships, fellowships, and prizes that may be of interest to you.
Contact us to schedule an individual appointment or drop in to our office on Thursdays from 3-5pm for more information.
While our primary focus is to assist undergraduate students with the nationally competitive and prestigious “major scholarships,” our site includes lists of additional undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities. In addition, undergraduate students seeking general scholarships can find assistance through the Purdue Division of Financial Aid.
