The Purdue Alumni Club of Northwest Indiana annually awards the Purdue Scholar Award. Students who think that they qualify for this award should start the application process by filling out the scholarship application and submitting it as soon as possible. To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must: be currently attending any Purdue University campus; be a resident of the club area (Lake, Porter, Jasper or Newton counties); have a 3.5 GPA; be a full time student having completed at least 24 credit hours; and will be an undergraduate student in the next academic year. Dollar amounts for the scholarship will vary.
The Northwest Indiana area is home to some 30,000+ Purdue alumni, the largest concentration anywhere in the world! The Purdue Club of Northwest Indiana was chartered as the Purdue Club of Lake County in 1949 and has continually fostered engagement with Purdue alumni and friends to this day! In the mid-2000’s, the club expanded to include Porter, LaPorte, Jasper, and Newton counties, and thus evolved into the Purdue Alumni Club of Northwest Indiana. The club serves as a link, to connect alumni and supporters both to the university, as well as to each other.
