Purdue Women’s Network Scholarship Campaign's Network

Across the nation, women’s wealth and influence are on the rise, and Purdue women are leading the way. Now, together, we’re making a difference for generations to come.

Harnessing the potential of every Purdue alumnae and friend, Purdue Women’s Network will endow scholarships for undergraduate women students to foster their success through their time at Purdue and beyond.

When fully funded, the scholarship endowment will provide a renewable scholarship for a woman student in each of the 10 colleges on the main campus of Purdue University. The scholarships aim to support students who come from middle-income families. These students do not qualify for the 21st Century Scholars program and are less likely to have the means for a college education without incurring debt.

“I have been able to make the most out of my college experience. I feel very proud of what I have done and know that my goals are achievable now.”
Katherine Mason
Class of 2021

With these scholarships, Purdue Women’s Network is influencing the lives of young women — those who may not choose to attend Purdue without the financial help.

Upon reaching $100,000, the endowment will provide one scholarship annually, rotating each year to a different college. Once the endowment is fully funded, a recipient will be named within each college annually.
