The Purdue Division of Financial Aid projects about three-thousand students will qualify starting next fall. The grant is being aided by both existing university funds, and by outside donors. Purdue President Mitch Daniels says this will help families know about their finances in advance.

"I hope provides more clarity early on so families can know starting now that they'll be covered to that extent if their student chooses Purdue."

President Daniels is optimistic about the continuing financial efforts the university is making for students and families investing in Purdue. 
 
"The job is not done. There are still families who are struggling and scrimping and we're going to help them all we can. "

The Boiler Affordability Grant goes in part with the tuition freeze that's been in place at Purdue since 2012. President Daniels says more programs are being developed to aid both current and incoming students.
