For the Chapman Scholars Program and Growing Honors Program.  In addition to the $3 million dollars that they have already donated, the Chapmans are helping fund student scholarships and student-community engagement.

Howard Chapman says, "While they're here, we know they're gonna get a good education, and we wanted them to be significantly involved in our community, so that when they graduate they will feel that IPFW is their school and Fort Wayne is their town."

Chapman Scholarships are awarded to specially outstanding high school Seniors with a desire to go to college.

The scholars receive tuition, fees, room and board, and textbooks for 4 years.

The donation will bring the Chapman's total giving to over $7 million dollars towards the University.
