An Equal Access/Equal Opportunity University

At Purdue University, the selection of academic school and other University department scholarships are reviewed on an individual basis. This individual attention allows the scholarship selection committees to take a holistic approach in the evaluation of the student when reviewing and selecting scholarship recipients. Purdue University strives to utilize scholarships to recruit and retain students who will add to the rich diversity of the campus environment.

One of the major goals within Purdue's strategic plan is diversity, and the individual holistic review process supports this effort. Purdue's goal is to develop a student body that is reflective of the growing diverse population. This diversity enriches the academic development for all students by allowing exposure to different views and beliefs while creating appreciation for an array of ideas and perspectives.
