Kuyper College provides an exceptional value at a very affordable price. Our financial partnership with you begins with a tuition that is significantly lower than comparable Christian colleges - an average of $6,000 per year. Additionally, we are committed to providing a variety of scholarship and financial aid specifically for transfer students. We reward academic excellence by offering a large number of scholarships, below are some examples.
The scholarships listed in the table below are awarded soon after a student is admitted and do not require an additional scholarship application beyond the FAFSA.
Christian Leadership Scholarship
This $2,000 per year scholarship, renewable for up to four years, is sponsored by Kuyper alumni, and is available to new Kuyper students who have a minimum GPA of 3.2 and are involved in leadership positions. The application deadline for this scholarship is Feb. 15.
Several Multicultural Scholarships ranging from $500 to $5,000 per year, and renewable for up to four years, are given as part of our efforts to celebrate an intercultural campus community. These scholarships are offered to selected new Kuyper students. A GPA of 2.5 or higher is required, and recipients are expected to use their talents at Kuyper by being actively involved in groups that shape campus life and by working to develop academic, spiritual, and social leadership skills.
When our students add to our lower costs the quality of our academic programs, the spiritual and campus environment, and the extraordinary results that Kuyper graduates are achieving throughout the world, they find that a Kuyper education does indeed provide exceptional value.
