Scholarships and Purdue Graduate Assistantships
Each year, Purdue offers top applicants assistantship opportunities and scholarships to help reduce the cost of attending the Krannert School of Management. These merit-based awards do not require any additional application as all applicants are considered. Graduate Assistantships involve approximately 10 hours of work per week and provide a monthly stipend and significant remission of tuition and fees. (Please note: Graduate Assistantships are only available for MBA and MSHRM applicants)
Specific placement is determined after we have had the opportunity to assess your interest, skills and experience.
Many Purdue Master’s students serve as resident assistants within the Purdue Residence Halls system. All students (first-year, international, and continuing students are eligible to apply for these positions. RA positions provide for:

Additional sources of funding
Additional Graduate Assistantships and Employment
Students also secure graduate assistantships outside of the Krannert School of Management, based upon their special skills and expertise. While Purdue staff does not play any role in identifying potential positions or in the selection of these graduate assistants, we do encourage students to use the resources available to find available positions. There are also opportunities for students to find employment outside of the master’s programs, working for the University or in the Lafayette/West Lafayette area, although these would not include any type of tuition remission.
