Intended to encourage and aid students from Southern Arizona to attend Purdue University, the Scholarship Fund was established in 1997. The Fund is designed as an endowment, with scholarships financed by earnings from Fund investments. The principal is held and invested by the Purdue Foundation.
Scholarship recipients will be selected based on academic merit and a record of achievement and leadership in areas beyond academics, and will be approved by the Purdue Division of Financial Aid. Scholarships are awarded to both incoming freshmen and returning upper class Purdue Students.
Applications are due by March 1 and will be announced on May 1 for the upcoming academic year.
