Scholar Days

Join us Jan. 25, or Feb. 1

Scholar Days

The Central 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 open to all 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.

These include the following scholarships and awards:


These scholarships are the most prestigious awards granted at Central. Recipients will be chosen after all the Scholar Days are completed.


These are available to students who participate in a Scholar Day.
