Purdue Alumni Promote Program to Benefit IPS Students

Purdue University has had a steadily improving rate of success in graduating STEM majors who began their academic careers in Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS). This has been achieved through a program called Science Bound, which is tightly integrated with IPS beginning in Middle School.

Because of the potential benefits for inner-city students in Indianapolis, an event has been scheduled which will explore the opportunities in Science Bound. It will explain why all IPS students in grades 6, 7, and 8, with their parents, should consider enrolling in this program.

The Purdue Association of Indianapolis’ alumni objective in helping sponsor this event is to help the city, and the students who grow up and attend school in it. They hope to raise students’ awareness of what they might hope to accomplish in life, and how they may be able to go about it.

We believe that Purdue is offering a genuine opportunity, including scholarship support, for IPS students to achieve successful lives in technology, scientific, and engineering careers. This is an opportunity we would like every eligible student to learn about.

Questions about this event should be directed to:
