WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- A Chinese aluminum company that is opening a plant in Lafayette will give Purdue University $10 million to support international programs, research and training for faculty and scholarships for students who have graduated from Chinese high schools.
The grant from Nanshan Group Co. Ltd. will provide $2 million each year for the next five years.
Purdue President France A. Cordova says the grant announced Monday shows how universities and international businesses can collaborate on research and learning.
Nanshan Group is China's second-largest aluminum company. It is the parent company of the Shandong Nanshan Aluminum Co. firm that will open a facility in Lafayette next year.
The plant expects to employ about 150 people within two years.
