Scholar Day

Join Us for Our Prestigious Scholar Days

The Central College experience creates connections and opens doors to a future filled with relationships you can lean into time and time again. It starts with a conversation with faculty during Scholar Day, where you and other accomplished students have the opportunity to earn top academic scholarships up to full tuition. Not only will you have the chance to make friends and meet professors, you’ll also participate in an open-ended group challenge designed to showcase collaboration, creativity and communication.

This event is exclusively offered to admitted students. Dress is business casual.

Scholar Day is a great opportunity to visit campus and meet future classmates. Students attending this event will be eligible for various scholarships and likely form friendships for a lifetime. Scholar Day gives students the opportunity to compete for scholarships beyond what is awarded at the time of admittance:

  • Full-Tuition Scholarships
    Central awards multiple Kuyper, Rolscreen and Thomas Ross Smith Scholarships — which cover recipients’ tuition all four years. These scholarships are the most prestigious awards granted at Central. Recipients will be chosen after all Scholar Days are completed.
  • $500-1,500 Scholar Day Awards
    These are available to students who participate in Scholar Day.

This year’s Scholar Day topic is truly out of this world! Bring your insights to a theoretical exploration of the dark side of the moon. As you prepare for your half-day session, you’ll learn more about the Apollo project and hear from NASA astronaut Raja Chari.

Save the date! Scholar Days will be held on Saturdays, Nov. 2, Nov. 9, Jan. 18 and Jan. 25. Admitted students are invited to register for a half-day session during our group Scholar Days. Registration for Scholar Day will open in August. 

Unable to attend one of our Scholar Day events? You can still register for an Individual Scholar Day to participate on-campus or virtually! This opportunity allows admitted students to still qualify for additional scholarships beyond what is awarded upon admission to Central.
