Scholarship Opportunities

PESC would not exist without the amazing student body of Purdue University. Purdue is built upon the countless student organizations that go on to accomplish great achievements and make lasting impacts on local and global communities. PESC offers scholarships to students and organizations of Purdue University West Lafayette as a way to give back to those who make Purdue incredible.


Merit Fund

The Merit Fund was started as a way for PESC to give back to Purdue's engineering community by providing monetary support for engineering organizations on campus. Through this award, PESC strives to encourage and facilitate the creation and implementation of a wide array of engineering related activities and programs that will have an impact on Purdue and the community. Funds awarded in both the fall and spring after an application and interview process, with a banquet held for the winners in the spring.

The organization must be a student-run Purdue University Engineering organization. It is not necessary to have “engineering” in the title of the organization; however, the project should involve facilitating interest in engineering or promoting the knowledge of engineering principles. The finances awarded through Merit Fund are intended to support one-time future project costs. In the past, such funds have supported various outreach programs, research, and engineering-related goals. The funds may not be used for catering social events, creating logo wear, etc.

Applications are now open!
