Purdue’s Division of Financial Aid processes all scholarships before awarded - names of award recipients and the amount received are included as part of the standard record-keeping procedure at the University. If you receive other financial aid that is processed by that office, any award you receive through the ECET Department may have an impact on your other financial aid. Each recipient will receive half of the scholarship money for the fall semester and the balance will be received for the spring semester. Every effort is made to assure that the list of scholarships is accurate at any given point in time. All available scholarships are awarded each school year.
