Purdue University Northwest offers a variety of scholarships to recognize student achievement and provide financial assistance to help with the cost of an education. Students are awarded institutional scholarships based on donor requirements, student qualifications and fund availability. Scholarships may be awarded for merit, financial need or both. Most scholarships have deadlines and may be awarded well in advance of the next academic year. Students who are interested in pursuing scholarship opportunities are encouraged to apply early. Please visit this site often since new scholarships are posted as they become available.
Purdue University Northwest is dedicated to recognizing the academic excellence of our students. Entering freshmen and new transfer students are considered for academic scholarships as part of the admissions process. These scholarships are renewable provided the recipient continues to meet the scholarship criteria and program requirements.
The Office of Financial Aid scholarship committee has the privilege of awarding numerous scholarships to students due to the generosity of our donors. Students are selected based on academic performance, program of study, grade classification, enrollment status and other selection criteria. Additionally, many annual and endowed scholarships are awarded by the Academic Colleges or Departments as required by the scholarship criteria. Institutional scholarships require an application which must be submitted in order to receive consideration.
Some scholarships have very specific criteria and require a separate application. Please review the criteria for each award carefully and only apply for those for which you may qualify.

Scholarship Thank You Note
Institutional scholarships are made possible through the generous support of our scholarship donors. Institutional scholarship recipients will receive a Scholarship Notification letter which contains thank you note information. Scholarship recipients should submit a thank you note to the scholarship donor. This will provide a personal touch to the donor who is funding a portion of your education and support our efforts to secure additional funding for Purdue Northwest students like you.
