III. Giving to Study Abroad
Giving for the first time, or continuing to support Purdue's international education efforts, is a meaningful way to show your support for a quality-based global education. Your gifts will have an impact now and for many years to come.
Students who have taken part in study abroad often describe their experiences as "life changing", "eye opening" and even "the best choice I ever made". In addition to the life-enriching qualities of these programs, they also help students' careers; many employers see study abroad participation as proof that a person is self-reliant, adaptable and comfortable with people who are different from themselves.
Your donation can provide scholarships for study abroad programs or international internships, giving students invaluable hands-on experience in another country and enabling them to reach their full potential. You can help open these opportunities to more Purdue students with a gift to the "International Programs Unrestricted Fund".
