Opportunities for Current Students

Purdue Engineering students have access to many scholarship opportunities within their professional school as well as externally. As your education and professional development advances, your availability to obtain scholarships expands. Scholarships are an investment in you, providing recognition for your potential and your previous hard work, allowing students to reduce or eliminate loan debt, and look great on your professional resume.

Scholarship Cycle

Timing can be the most challenging aspect of applying for scholarships. The majority of scholarships follow a typical timeline: researching, identifying, applying and notification. Students should consider following this guideline, paying close attention to specific deadline dates. For scholarships administered by the college or schools, application will occur during winter/spring with notification during spring/summer.

Engineering Schools & Programs Scholarships

The College of Engineering awards $3.8 million in scholarships annually to undergraduate students in the college and professional schools, provided by the generosity of our alumni, friends and corporate engagement. Every scholarship endowment/gift is pivotal to transforming the lives of future Purdue Engineers and providing the “Wings” to succeed.

Scholarship awards are made on an annual basis. Exception: December graduate students and Co-Op students.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of scholastic merit, financial need, qualities of leadership, citizenship, character and professional goals.

Note: It is important to note that scholarships awarded by schools and programs may require an independent scholarship application submission. Deadline dates will vary by school, but school scholarship applications must be complete by May 1, 2020.
