How to apply for scholarships

The application forms for named scholarships are available every year beginning December 1 and must be submitted by February 1. All of the scholarships for first-year students and current students are available online. All students who will be enrolled next academic year are encouraged to apply.

Your Calvin education will be more accessible to you through named scholarships. Three scholarships are available specifically for first-year physics and astronomy students: the Ivan E. and Rebecca J. Boerman Scholarship, the Gabrielse Scholarship and the Roger D. Griffioen Scholarship. Returning physics and astronomy students may also be eligible for the Roger D. Griffioen Scholarship, the Howard and Betty VanTill Scholarship, and the Steensma Family Physics and Astronomy Scholarship.

In addition, four first-year students in biology, chemistry, physics or mathematics are awarded the Howard Hughes Medical Institute four year scholarship.
