Named Deanship

An endowed named deanship is the hallmark of a top dean at the best colleges and universities. As with professorships, named deanships help attract and retain the most outstanding leadership in the country.

Endowed Professorships

Endowed named 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).

In addition to named professorships, Rising Star professorships will help attract and retain early career faculty.

Undergraduate Scholarships

When HHS was established in 2010, it started at ground zero to establish unrestricted undergraduate student scholarships. Unrestricted scholarship funds are awarded across the college to help achieve strategic enrollment initiatives. A scholarship 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 benefit students.

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.
