Purdue Convocations education events and scholarship opportunities are made possible with support from:2017-18 Education Sponsors: Wilson Industrial and Guido Family Dentistry


These matinees give area schoolchildren the opportunity to attend a performing-arts presentation in a theater and, for many students, serve as an introduction to live performance. Featured performances for the 2017-18 season include My Father’s DragonFreedom Riders, PostSecret: The Show, and Curious George: The Golden Meatball.


Some artists bring their talents directly to local schools. These performances or master classes help us reach many additional area students through the arts—allowing them to ask questions of the artists and get to know them as people as well as performers.


Purdue Convocations wants to ensure that every student has access to performing-arts events. Our scholarship program helps remove economic barriers that prevent students from attending Convocations events by providing scholarships that subsidize tickets and transportation to student matinees and placing artist residencies in schools with demonstrated economic need.
