Over the past 67 years Mortar Board has given nearly one million dollars in fellowships to Purdue students pursuing graduate degrees. The money for these fellowships and awards comes largely from the annual sales of the well-known calendar, appropriately named, the Mortar Board. Thanks to the sale of 22,100 calendars this year, Mortar Board will again present fellowships to Purdue seniors who plan to pursue graduate education.
Mortar Board annually awards graduate fellowships to encourage Purdue students of high character and ability to pursue an advanced degree in graduate or professional studies. Through the awarding of these fellowships, Mortar Board seeks to benefit and recognize students who show potential leadership in their chosen field and in their community. Mortar Board awards up to ten fellowships annually, each in the amount of $2,500.
