Intern Solutions -  we connect students and other young adults with job solutions every day, and lately, we’ve noticed a fantastic trend: more and more people are opting for a trade rather than a white collar career. And our team couldn’t be more thrilled about it! Not only do these careers fulfill a passion for their employees, but they are and always will be in high demand.

I think about it this way: if I had a home repair project I wanted done or car trouble I needed addressed, there is no way — no WAY — I would have the skills to get the job done myself. And I know I’m not alone.

With that in mind, we’re working on a campaign to share scholarship opportunities available to aspiring trades workers.

Purdue University - Affordability for Indiana Residents - Indiana counselors, please remind your low- and middle-income students of the financial opportunities at Purdue for Indiana residents:

Pell Pledge – a program for Indiana residents with high financial need who qualify for the Federal Pell Grant Program. The Pell Pledge ensures that full tuition and fees are covered for eligible students. This includes Indiana resident fees as well as the additional fees charged to students in computer science, data science, engineering, management and Purdue Polytechnic. Marquis Scholarship – for Indiana residents with family income between $40,000 and $100,000. The scholarship provides at least $4,000 toward Purdue’s costs and the Division of Financial Aid prioritizes additional free aid so that qualified Marquis recipients receive up to $6,000 additional funding to cover tuition and fees (up to $10,000 total). Purdue Promise – a financial aid and student support package for Indiana’s income-eligible 21st Century Scholars (income of $50,000 or less). With the combination of work-study and free aid, the award covers 100 percent of a student’s demonstrated financial need. In addition to tuition and fees, it ensures that the average cost of housing, books and miscellaneous expenses are covered for eligible students. Frozen Tuition – Purdue’s tuition has been frozen for six years straight and average on-campus housing costs have decreased. The result is that it will cost less to attend Purdue in 2018-19 than it did in 2012-13 – a benefit for all Purdue students, not just Indiana residents.
