Mechanical Engineering Emergency Scholarship Fund

The Mechanical Engineering Emergency Scholarship Fund exists to assist our students through unforeseen and unavoidable emergencies that may arise while a Purdue Mechanical Engineering student. These scholarships are designed to provide critical financial support for unexpected emergency situations that prevent a student from being able to meet their financial obligations to Purdue University.

Only current Purdue Mechanical Engineering students on the West Lafayette Campus may apply for these emergency scholarships. Students should only apply for these scholarships once they have exhausted all other resources available (loans, external scholarships, additional student aid, assistance from friends or family, and other personal resources). The funding is not available for students seeking to reimburse expenses that have already been paid to the University. If a student is awarded a Mechanical Engineering Emergency Scholarship, they do not have to be repaid.
