Awards

  • President’s Outstanding Graduate Awards - $500 each

    These awards are presented annually by the President and are meant to encourage KPU students in all fields of study to excel in their program choice and participate in university, student and community activities that benefit others. 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.
