General information:

The Purdue Club of Chicago (PCC) is the oldest and one of the largest of Purdue University’s Alumni Clubs. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Purdue presence in the Chicago metropolitan area. PCC’s programming promotes Purdue University and engages the 21,000 alumni that live in Chicagoland. Many of the events are designed to raise funds for our scholarship awards. PCC has also funded an Endowment via Purdue Alumni to further our scholarship goals. For additional information or to make a donation, please visit and click on “About” and then “Fundraising.”

PCC awards an annual scholarship to an incoming freshman from the Chicago area to help offset the costs of out-of-state tuition. The Scholarship is primarily merit based, but need is considered in the overall evaluation. PCC strives to award deserving recipients who are well-rounded, that the Scholarship Committee believes will succeed at Purdue while embracing its traditions and spirit.
