Scholarships 2016 - 2017

The College of Education offers undergraduate scholarships for both beginning and continuing students.

Beginning Students (new freshmen)

Merit-only Scholarships

Beginning students must apply to Purdue using The Common Application. The admission application must be complete - all required supporting materials must be received or postmarked by Nov. 8, 2015.  All merit scholarships will be selected using information you submitted for admission to Purdue University.  No additional information is needed.  

If you receive a Purdue merit scholarship, you may be invited to participate in the College of Education (COE) Alfred DeVito Scholars Program, a first year seminar class that includes an opportunity to research with a COE professor during the second semester of your freshman year. 

Merit plus Financial Need Scholarships

There are some College undergraduate scholarships that are given based on merit and financial need.  We encourage all beginning and continuing students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1 in order to maximize consideration for all federal, state, and institutional funds you may be eligible to receive. 


Beginning Students (new freshmen)

A number of Purdue’s scholarships are awarded based on information provided via a separate scholarship application. This application is used to identify candidates for awards that have very specific criteria, including a financial-need component. To be considered, admitted students should complete the online scholarship application by Feb. 1, 2016.

Note: A complete admissions application submitted by November 8, 2015 is required.
