A select group of Purdue and area high school students are getting money to further their college education.
Forty-eight individuals received scholarships from the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette.
They accepted the financial awards during a ceremony, Tuesday.
The Community Foundation gave out nearly $73,000 in scholarships.
The non-profit also awarded three scholarships that cover the full cost of eight semesters and a $900 book stipend.
All three of those went to students who plan on attending Purdue.
