Purdue event on minority scholarships runs July 16-18

Minority scholarships

are readily available for students with the right academic backgrounds, but despite the availability of these minority scholarships, African-American students remain underrepresented on Big Ten college campuses.

Only 4% of Purdue' University's undergraduate and graduate students are black, or half of the state percentage, according to a recent report. In fact, Purdue ranked fourth from the bottom, at 13%, for enrollment of domestic minority students among Big Ten and other peer schools, according to the report.
