Scholar Day is a celebration of kingdom-focused academic scholarship. Students have a chance to present their scholarship to their peers, faculty, and the broader Kuyper Community. Current Kuyper students are presenting papers, poster presentations, and creative performances as a way to represent their excellent work, and to honor the mission of Kuyper College. These types of scholarship will be presented on Kuyper’s campus in an all-day conference style event, starting with our annual Honors Convocation, which honors the efforts and work of graduating students.
