The Chapman Challenge Launched at Fort Wayne
Indiana Ag Connection - 07/26/2018

Purdue University Fort Wayne and Howard and Betsy Chapman have developed The Chapman Challenge to create 25 new endowed scholarships in the amount of $25,000 each.

The Chapmans have pledged more than $200,000 to be matched $1 for $2 in the creation of the endowments. A donor would contribute 2/3 of the $25,000 and the Chapmans would donate the remaining 1/3 for the scholarship.

"This is a unique and generous opportunity offered by the Chapmans," says Ron Elsenbaumer, chancellor. "Endowing the scholarships means they will benefit generations of Purdue Fort Wayne students because the principal donation will remain in perpetuity."

The goal is to create the 25 endowed scholarships in year one of the newly realigned Purdue University Fort Wayne. The Chapmans want only to donate the money. They want the decisions regarding the requirements of the scholarship and any other involvement to be solely with the majority donor.

"Our commitment to this university is stronger than ever," says Howard Chapman, donor. "Betsy and I believe the future of this campus is bright, and we are dedicated to helping students become successful members of the community."

Fifteen donors have already committed to creating an endowment through this opportunity.

The scholarship will be available to students attending Purdue University Fort Wayne.
