Continuing Students Scholarship Opportunities

University Scholarships and Financial Aid

The Division of Financial Aid awards merit and need-based scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study opportunities. To maximize consideration for all federal, state and institutional funds, students should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by December 1 for the following academic year. Applications completed after this date may result in student ineligibility for certain types of state financial aid.

Continuing student financial aid notifications begin in July of each year.

College of Science Scholarship Process

Continuing student scholarships are determined by scholarship committees in each department and at the College level. While a majority of scholarships only require completion of the College of Science Scholarship Application, in several instances, additional documentation may be requested. Requests of information will be sent by a scholarship committee to qualified students via their Purdue email address.

Continuing Student Scholarship Application

Continuing students must complete the 201718 College of Science Scholarship Application for scholarship consideration. The Continuing Student Scholarship Application will be availabe beginning December 1, 2016 for the 201718 academic year. The priority deadline to apply for scholarship consideration is February 1.

Students should plan to complete the scholarship process well in advance of the deadline to prevent issues with submission of the application. Those completing the application after February 1 will be considered after those students meeting the priority deadline. If you encounter problems logging into the application please contact for assistance.

The Continuing Student Scholarship Application is in a survey format and cannot be re-set. Applicants may not return to questions which have been submitted and are strongly encouraged to save question responses in a Word document for transfer to the application. Questions may be reviewed prior to submission.
