Do you desire to return to your country after graduation and serve in an area of ministry?

Through the vision and generosity of donors to Kuyper College, the Ambassador Scholarship is offered to selected international students for whom education and training in ministry may not be available in their home countries.

The Ambassador Scholarship is awarded with the expectation that after completion of their studies, graduates will return to their home country and serve in their field of study.

The selection of new recipients is made by the Financial Aid Office.  Selection is based on the Statement of Finances and the student’s completed admission file. 

Recipients of the Ambassador Scholarship must be enrolled in one of the following programs:  business leadership, interdisciplinary studies, ministry leadership, youth ministry, social work, a certificate, or associate degree program.  Students must have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale).
