Abstract

Since 2013, Purdue University has been implementing a series of strategies to increase summer enrollment and affordability as part of the Purdue Moves initiative. One important aspect of the plan includes dedicating a portion of new summer tuition and fees toward strategic scholarships and need-based financial aid to help students speed time to degree completion. In the past, scholarships  ere dedicated to Summer Start, Summer Stay, and Summer Finish. In 2018, the Advisor-Initiated Scholarship, Summer Internship Plus, and Early Start  residential Scholarship were added to the portfolio and the application timeline for existing scholarships was revised to maximize the impact on enrollment.

Keywords: Scholarship, Summer Study, Enrollment Management
