The Graduate School Advance to a Higher Degree

Funding Overview

There are several funding options for Purdue graduate students to explore, including assistantships, fellowships, grants, loans and other financial aid. Financial support for graduate students at Purdue is primarily awarded in the form of assistantships and fellowships. Over 60 percent of graduate students at the University are on assistantships.

Most funding decisions, including assistantships, are made by each individual graduate program. Some programs fund all of their graduate students, although others fund only a few or provide only partial funding support. Some funding opportunities are open for student applications, but others are faculty-awarded and therefore not open for applications.

If you have a question about funding, contact your individual graduate program.
