The Division of Financial Aid is excited to introduce ScholarshipUniverse, a new tool that makes finding and applying for both Purdue scholarships and external scholarships easier.

What is ScholarshipUniverse?

ScholarshipUniverse is a matching system that maximizes scholarship opportunities for students. It allows students to create an academic profile that enables them to connect with various internal and external scholarship opportunities. Updating the student profile criteria regularly will ensure students are seeing all external scholarships for which they qualify. ScholarshipUniverse will also match students to Purdue scholarships and departmental scholarships for which they qualify to apply.

How does ScholarshipUniverse work?

  • Students answer questions that match them to scholarship opportunities for which they are eligible
  • Students easily apply online to multiple scholarship opportunities through a personalized portal
  • Students can track their application statuses via the portal
  • Students are alerted whenever they are matched to a new scholarship opportunity

How do I use ScholarshipUniverse?

 There are detailed ScholarshipUniverse navigation instructions and FAQs students may find helpful as they explore the new tool.

Please note: ScholarshipUniverse is only compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge browsers.
