The Purdue Opportunity Awards Program (POA) provides scholarship monies and support programming to income eligible Twenty-first Century Scholars from Indiana. Made possible through the generosity of Purdue's alumni and friends, qualified students may receive a nice scholarship package as long as they fulfill the requirements of the program, one of which includes full participation in the Purdue Promise support program for four years.

The Purdue Opportunity Award criteria is the same as for the Purdue Promise program. Click here for eligibility information.

To be considered, admitted students must be admitted to Purdue and must have a complete FAFSA on file with the Purdue University Division of Financial Aid by March 1 of their senior year. If a student meets the criteria for Purdue Promise, they will be notified by the Student Success at Purdue Office in April of their senior year.

Questions about the Purdue Opportunity Awards program and selection process should be directed to the Student Success at Purdue department by phoning 765-494-9328 or e-mailing
