YOUR GENEROSITY DIRECTLY BENEFITS STUDENTS AND PROVIDES RESOURCES TO REALIZE ACHIEVEMENTS LIKE THOSE EXPERIENCED DURING OUR INAUGURAL YEAR. PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING OUR INITIATIVES FOR THE COMING YEAR.
As a new college, we’ve started at ground zero to establish unrestricted undergraduate student scholarships. Unrestricted scholarship funds are awarded where they are most needed, regardless of major or department. Unrestricted funding often means the difference between a student coming to Purdue or not. Gifts of any amount will help us build the HHS undergraduate scholarship fund and will benefit students. Those who have established an endowed undergraduate scholarship by June 30, 2013, will become members of the HHS Founders Club.
HHS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION
This monetary award was established to recognize excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching and contributions to undergraduate learning beyond classroom instruction. Award recipients are chosen by a committee of HHS faculty based on nominations by their departments or schools.
GRADUATE STUDENT SUPPORT
Financial support for graduate student education and living stipends provides a competitive advantage among our peer institutions. Exceptional graduate students are crucial to attracting high-profile faculty and research funding. In turn, high-profile faculty are crucial when competing for exceptional graduate students.
Endowed professorships play a vital role in attracting and retaining top faculty in the competitive world of higher education. Endowed professorships cover part or all of a faculty member’s salary, thereby allowing the college to reduce its student-to-faculty ratio (a statistic used for college rankings and other institutional evaluations), and/or direct money that would otherwise have been spent on salaries toward other college needs.
Funds are needed to support a variety of college-level initiatives including enriching undergraduate programming through research opportunities, leadership development programs, and experiential learning opportunities such as service learning and study abroad; bringing top researchers from around the world to campus to enhance classroom learning; recognizing HHS faculty through annual research awards; recruiting a diverse population of undergraduate students; and expanding undergraduate student research opportunities.
