Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be repaid. Competition for scholarships is high, so it is important to start as early as possible when identifying funding sources. There are three main sources to consider – Krannert, Purdue, and external sources.

Krannert School of Management

The Krannert School of Management offers a number of scholarships to students each year. Applicants who are offered admission to the Executive MBA programs are considered for merit-based scholarships, namely the Dean's Scholarship and the Boilermaker Scholarship for Purdue alumni.

Scholarship decisions are made based on a complete review of the applicant as well as the interview. As scholarships are provided on a rolling basis, it is to your advantage to apply as early as possible, while funds are still available. Scholarship amounts include any and all offers or discounts from our Executive Education Programs.

Questions regarding the Dean's Scholarships and Boilermaker Scholarships should be directed to the executive director of Krannert Executive Education Programs, Aldas Kriauciunas, at

Scholarships are awarded in Purdue EMBA Programs for tuition payments 2-5, with no distribution awarded toward the first tuition payment.

Purdue University

Through the University you may apply for several general scholarships for graduate students that are awarded by the University and related sources. A database of funding opportunities and other helpful information can be found on the Graduate School website.

External Sources

These opportunities generally have one or more specific eligibility criteria – race, ethnicity, academic excellence, interest in particular fields of study, and so on. Find private scholarship resources here.
