Student Scholarship Committee
The PURA Student Scholarship Committee was established in response to a matching fund opportunity made available by a generous grant to Purdue University to create new scholarships for Indiana residents with significant financial need. In October 2015, PURA pledged to raise $25,000 in five years. Contributions received will be matched dollar for dollar. This committee is responsible for the fundraising effort to raise the initial pledge of $25,000 and for continuing support to fund this true endowment on an annual basis.
As you review the responsibilities of this committee, we ask that you consider making a gift to the scholarship endowment and/or joining this group of dedicated individuals working to help better the lives of Indiana students with financial need. You may contribute on line www.giving.purdue/PURA or send a check payable to Purdue Research Foundation, with the PURA Student Scholarship noted in the memo line. Mail it to: Purdue Research Foundation, 403 W. Wood Street, West Lafayette, IN 47907-2007.
Members of the committee are:
