WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The John Purdue Club is responsible for paying the annual scholarship bill - consisting of tuition, fees, room and board, and books - for Purdue's 500-plus student-athletes. This year, it amounts to nearly $11 million.
We have decided to "rename" our annual John Purdue Club Day event to include "Scholarship" and to remain focused on our quest to ensure that our student-athletes receive a world-class education. Historically, we have charged a registration fee, but this year, we are asking you to make a gift instead to the scholarship fund. We are hoping you will register and make an additional contribution to the scholarship beyond your current membership donation.
Please join us Saturday, June 7.
Our Goal for the Day
$20,810 - The equivalent of one in-state scholarship
Help us pay our current scholarship bill of $10,777,400. We still owe over $5 million.
What's in it for you?
Earn additional John Purdue Club priority points
80 percent is tax deductible (unlike your past registration cost)
Know you played a role in our goal to develop champions/scholars/citizens
