Purdue Supplemental Scholarship Application:

Excerpt from the Division of Financial Aid Website, "If you submit a Purdue Supplemental Scholarship Application, the college/school that you are admitted to will notify you of any award selections in the spring. Additionally, admitted students will be able to view any award selections on the financial aid notice sent via mail to freshmen and available online on the myPurdue site in mid-March. Note that if you are not selected for a college/school need-based award you will not receive any special notification."

Merit Based Scholarships:

Purdue University awards most of its merit scholarships to qualified students based on academic information provided with admission applications that are complete by November 1, 2014. A complete admissions application includes all required material including ACT or SAT test score (including writing), high school transcript, and application fee. Purdue's largest merit scholarship awards are called the Trustees and Presidential scholarships (see information at University-wide scholarships).
