Elkhart and LaGrange County students who will be attending Purdue University as a full time undergraduate student in the fall are encouraged to apply for the Purdue Alumni Club of Elkhart County Scholarships. Students attending a Purdue or IU-PU regional campus are eligible to apply so long as they are enrolled in a Purdue major.
The application can be accessed at www.purduealumni.org/elkhart. High school seniors can contact their adviser to receive a printed copy of the application. Students can complete the application and return it by email or US mail. Completed applications and high school transcripts must be emailed or postmarked by Wednesday, April 1 to be considered.
In 2014, ten $1,000 scholarships and eleven $500 were awarded. The club plans to award at least as many scholarships this year, and has awarded over $190,000 since 2001.
If you have questions about the application process, contact Kathy Seltenright at (574) 533-9452 or Laurie Sula at (574)534-8854 or via e-mail at [email protected]
