With midterms and spring break fast-approaching, summer will be here before we know it. Summer is a great time to both catch up on coursework and gain practical experience in your major. Luckily, Purdue has something that will help you do both of these things: the Summer Stay Scholarship.
The Summer Stay Scholarship allows students to spend the summer in West Lafayette at a lower cost. The program includes taking nine credit hours and gaining internship experience in one of Purdue’s many departments. For example, an accounting major may participate in an internship with the Bursar office.
Undergraduate research opportunities are also available with this scholarship for every college on campus. Did you have a favorite professor this past semester? Ask if their lab is available this summer for research assistants! Many professors stick around over the summer, and your favorite just may be one of them.
Recipients of this scholarship can receive up to $2500, which would cover the full cost for in-state residents. Applications are due on March 2nd. Decisions are anticipated to be released the week of March 19th. If you want to get ahead and gain relevant experience in your field, then this scholarship may be worth looking into! The application is found on their website.
