Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders

In 2002, Purdue University pioneered a new solution to address the lack of diversity within the STEM pipeline. Purdue Bound brings together the resources of Purdue University, the Indianapolis Public School (IPS) system and the local business community. Its mission is to prepare IPS students for college and expose them to STEM opportunities. The program can begin as early as the eighth grade. Upon successful completion of the high school program, gaining admission to Purdue University and enrollment into an approved Purdue Bound major, the Purdue Bound scholar will be offered a 4-year tuition scholarship that fills the financial need for tuition, fees and books.
