One degree program graduate and one diploma program graduate will be recipients of this award.
Criteria: These awards are presented to students who have completed all study in an individual KPU program, have demonstrated outstanding ability in their field of study, have contributed in a significant way to KPU, student and/or community affairs, and have applied and been accepted for graduation.
A student may only receive this award once.
Students must include faculty reference letters with their application or may ask instructors to email directly to the Coordinator, Scholarships and Awards, firstname.lastname@example.org
