Despite outnumbering men on most college campuses, women are still underrepresented in many fields, including business.
Women only own around 38% of businesses in the US and are even more underrepresented when it comes to business leadership. Only 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women and just 20% of Fortune 500 board members are women.
This scholarship seeks to support underrepresented women who are pursuing careers in business so they can make a difference in their community.
Any female student pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree at Purdue University may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about a woman who inspires you and why.
