Select first-year students at Knox build upon their college successes as recipients of the prestigious Kemper Scholars Program.
Only students at designated Kemper Scholars institutions -- such as Knox -- may be nominated for the program, which is sponsored by the James S. Kemper Foundation in Chicago.
In addition to preparing students for leadership and service, the program encourages participants to gain experience, contacts, and training that can lead to careers in administration or business.
The many advantages of being a Kemper scholar include:
Kemper scholars periodically read and discuss major works on leadership, service, ethics, and business, and they have frequent contact with the national Kemper Foundation staff to discuss academic and professional goals, internships, and learning opportunities.
