A Scholarship That Covers Your Full Financial Need

The amount of this scholarship will vary based on financial need (as determined by the FAFSA). While your 21st Century Scholarship covers tuition, Purdue Promise can help pay for other expenses like housing!

A Purdue Promise Coach

Each student in Purdue Promise is assigned a Purdue Promise Coach. Ideally, you will work with this coach throughout your time at Purdue. This is someone who will know your name and will connect you to resources. Not only will your coach help you maintain your scholarship, but they will also be available to answer questions as needed. If they don't know the answer, they will find it for you or direct you to someone who does know!

Enrollment in GS 197, First-Year Seminar Course

Each student in Purdue Promise takes GS 197, a 1-credit class, in the fall of their freshmen year. This course will help you learn about Purdue in addition to helping you successfully transition from high school to college.

Enrollment in GS 405, Senior-Year Course

As a senior, you will take GS 405, a class that focuses on what you need to know to be successful after college. This 1-credit class focuses on practical topics such as: negotiating your first job offer, comparing medical insurance packages, and how to start building credit.

Free Printing

Purdue Promise students get free printing during their time at Purdue! This means that you won't need to worry about paying this cost out-of-pocket!

Purdue Promise Coaching Modules

As part of the Purdue Promise program, you will complete the Purdue Promise coaching modules. These are online activities that not only help you to be successful as a Purdue student, but that also help you prepare for your future as a college graduate. Examples of activities include: planning a study abroad trip, having your resume reviewed, and attending an internship fair.
