Using Strategic Scholarships to Increase Affordability and Accelerate Enrollment Growth
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.
