At Krannert, we recommend that all first year beginning undergraduate and returning or transfer students utilize this application for opportunities to receive or renew college awarded merit scholarships. Merit based Krannert scholarships are not automatically renewable. Students should plan accordingly and reapply for these scholarships annually.
The scholarship application becomes available in the fall and deadlines are posted on the Purdue University-Scholarship Application link. Merit based scholarships are based upon leadership, financial need, academics and other criteria to recognize student accomplishments.
Students awarded Trustees, Presidential, Emerging Leaderships, 21st Century, Purdue Promise and other university renewable scholarships should review the scholarships criteria yearly and strive to exceed the criteria.
The Purdue Moves Study Abroad scholarship area offers students the opportunity to apply for international experience funding in November, January and April. Visit the study abroad area at Krannert to learn about financial planning and additional Krannert scholarship opportunities.We also encourage students to explore opportunities through the National and International Scholarship Office (NISO). The NISO team will assist students in applying for highly competitive scholarship opportunities.

Apply for Purdue Scholarships
To ensure maximum consideration for Purdue scholarships, future freshmen applying for fall should:
- complete their application (application form and all required material) by the November 1 Early Action deadline,
- submit the Supplemental Scholarship Application by January 1* (available to applicants via the Financial Aid Website November 1–January 1),
- file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 1. (The FAFSA is available beginning October 1. Students should release FAFSA information to Purdue West Lafayette using Federal School Code 001825.)
Krannert uses the Supplemental Scholarship Application to identify recipients for awards that have very specific criteria. More information is available on the freshman scholarships page.
