WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.- The Purdue Grand Prix Foundation senior board selected 13 students to receive scholarships of $750. This year’s scholarship recipients are Allison Hanion, Corin Smith, Dayna Kyler, Debra Hughes, Elaina Etter, Jessica Radwick, Joshua Randall, Kathryn Wolfert, Logan Glassburn, Neal Ottinger, Rachel Osborne, Renee Forfa, and Saben Fletcher.
“We had a lot of very deserving students apply for the scholarship program this year. I am very happy the Grand Prix Foundation could reward these students for their hard work.” said Austin Hubbell, Director of Business.
Scholarship recipients are chosen by the students on the Grand Prix Foundation Senior Board based on academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, and enthusiasm for Purdue’s greatest traditions. The selection process allows Senior Board to interview the top applicants after screening online applications and resumes.
The 2019 Grand Prix scholarship recipients will work alongside the queen candidates to promote the Grand Prix Race while upholding the foundation’s motto “Students Helping Students”.
Both the scholarship recipients and queen candidates will be recognized for their accomplishment at The Post Practice Pit Stop, a celebratory networking event with Grand Prix alumni and on Race Day.
The 62nd Annual Purdue Grand Prix Race will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Tickets will be available for purchase on the Purdue Grand Prix Foundation’s website now. They will cost $10 if purchased in advance and $15 at the door.
