The College of Engineering has a proven track record for fulfilling and maintaining a high volume of merit-based scholarships. With a gift of any amount, you can be a part of this success by supporting the educational endeavors of Purdue students while allocating the funds specifically to students from the engineering school or program of your choice.

Presidential Scholarships
The Presidential Scholars Program has given the College of Engineering the opportunity to choose the majority of its own scholarship recipients based on attributes considered important to the success of our future students. Presidential scholars will be selected based on their overall GPA from high school and their test scores, combined with the student's demonstrated leadership through extracurricular activities, sports, and/or working while in high school. The ability of our Scholars to demonstrate the well-rounded attributes of academic success partnered with extracurricular activities is important. In addition, we are seeking students who value diverse and global thinking, understand engineering is creative and socially relevant, and have demonstrated intent to persist in engineering through participation in high school engineering related programs. Presidential scholarship support will be $8,000 per year for in-state students and $10,000 per year for out-of-state students.
