Past Scholarship Winners

After submitting an application, candidates are invited to interview with the Senior Board. Recipients are selected based on their academic excellence, university involvement, community activities, and financial need. These students demonstrate exemplary leadership skills in their organizations and show strong dedication to academic success.

The Grand Prix Foundation is built upon the motto of “Students Helping Students.” Scholarships are awarded to deserving young men and women here at Purdue University through the funds raised from donations and ticket sales for the Grand Prix Race. In 2016, the Foundation awarded $11,000 to Purdue students (listed below). If you would like to contribute to this tradition of “Students Helping Students,” please contact the Director of Business at
