Ag Alumni Trust Fund:

Established in 1967 by the Purdue Agricultural Alumni Association, the Ag Alumni Trust Fund was created to provide flexible funds to help meet the needs of the College of Agriculture for which other resources were unavailable. The Ag Alumni Trust Fund Board, with the assistance of the Dean of Agriculture and their staff, evaluates all proposals submitted and sets priorities for funding. An estimated $20,000 is awarded annually from this funding source. Trust funds have supported such things as special equipment, the DC internship program, sending students to professional meetings, along with a variety of other projects/needs. Projects that will have an impact on many students appeal to the committee, as do experiential learning proposals. Proposals have to have a College of Agriculture impact or connection to be considered.  Deadline to apply is in the fall each year (see below for the next deadline) with the Ag Alumni Trust Fund committee meeting to decide in late fall. All proposals will be considered for the year in which they are submitted and are not kept on file for future consideration. Please fill out the Trust Fund application in its entirely to be considered for a financial award. Funding is for current/future usage, previous events/experiences do not qualify. 

The proposals chosen to receive funding will need to submit a certification of completion report after the funds are used. Contents of these reports are released to the Ag Alumni Association, Purdue University, and the College of Agriculture and may be used in recruiting, marketing and informative materials. 

The next deadline to apply is: October 25, 2019.
