High-achieving students gain greater access to CEM

Motivated, well-prepared high school students who hope to study construction engineering and management at Purdue have new reason to anticipate that they'll receive a scholarship that their academic achievements deserve.

Thanks to generous Purdue donors, the university's Access & Success campaign is matching scholarship donations of $25,000 or more. Dollar-for-dollar matching funds are available for donations as large as $5 million.

"CEM is such an outstanding program and we've always had a history of having talented students," says Madonna Wilson, director of development for CEM. "Scholarships give them a step up so that they won't be facing huge debt when they graduate. It just makes the quality CEM program and a Purdue engineering education that much more attainable to students."

The scholarships are named for the donor or can be named for someone the donor wishes to honor.

To help qualified students receive a scholarship and pursue a CEM education, you or your organization can participate in supporting scholarships for the CEM Access & Success campaign by contacting Wilson at (765) 494-6490 or
