Honors College Funds:
Honors College Fund
We are always thinking of new ways to support our students in their many endeavors. By supporting our Honors College Fund, our area of greatest need, you are providing help for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
Honors College Scholarship Fund
It is our goal to provide the best in honors education to Boilermakers. To ensure they can fully capture the benefits of our interdisciplinary coursework, we want their thoughts to be on their studies, not their finances. By giving to the Purdue Honors College Scholarship Fund, you help make the dream of an honors education possible for those of limited financial means.
Honors College Travel and Research Fund
Honors Students are highly involved with undergraduate research, and your gift to this fund supports students traveling to attend conferences, conduct research off campus, present their research at conferences, or to travel to interview for national and international scholarships.
Honors College Study Away Fund
The Honors College is dedicated to providing high impact learning experiences to our students in and outside of the classroom. These opportunites allow students to enrich their intellectual development and intercultural learning. Donations to this fund provide financial support to students that may not otherwise be able to afford to study away or study abroad. Your generosity supports expenses related to these programs.
Honors College Health and Well-Being Initiatives Fund
Honors College students often experience stress and anxiety due to expectations they put on themselves, from their parents, or to keep scholarship(s) they’ve been awarded. Recent programming initiatives have included QPR Suicide Prevention Training, Planting and Painting, "Balancing it All" Discussion Hours, Wellness Wednesdays: Thera-Putty, and Meditation classes. A psychology doctoral student is also volunteering her time to work individually with HC students that are battling stress and anxiety. These initiatives allow Honors students to combat strett and experience success in their academic courses and extracurricular activities.
Honors College Interdisciplinary Fund
A top-notch honors education demands notable faculty, mentors and professional partners. Through the Honors College Interdisciplinary Fund, you give our students the ability to reach across academic fields and broaden their thinking. Because of your support, they will work with world-class professors and industry-leading professionals.
"What I love about the Honors College is the residential opportunity to connect with other Honors students. It will help current and future students enjoy a well-rounded university experience."
Linda Felt, Donor Profile
"Strong careers are built on the ability to problem solve with others, and the Honors College is clearly invested in helping students learn how to work together."
Adam Kline, Donor Profile
By combining the small size and feel of a close-knit community of scholars with the curriculum, faculty and research capabilities of a top-ranked public research university, we provide Purdue’s most motivated students with a one-of-a-kind experience. In the university’s only academic residential college, they will find a seamless blend of living and learning, where time outside the classroom holds as much opportunity for personal growth as the hours within.
