Support for our Graduate Program comes in numerous forms. Naturally, government and research grants support student assistantships as well as competitive assistantships offered internally within Purdue University. However, funds for graduate students also are needed for supplementing these assistantships, travel to professional meetings, awards, and special programs.
We are pleased to also announce several endowments that support programs, directly or indirectly, for our graduate students. Those endowments include:
These endowments provide indefinite annual spending income of over $18,000 per year, helping support our programs and providing flexibility. Also, we receive funds for special fellowships/assistantships from the College of Agriculture and Purdue's Graduate School.
