Black Alumni Network Textbook Grant

For current Calvin students to help defray the cost of academic books and to encourage students in their academic pursuits.


All current undergraduate Calvin University Black students (African-American or from any other country) who meet the following requirements are eligible to apply for the Calvin Black Alumni Network Textbook Grants. Applicant criteria:

  1. Have completed at least two semesters by June 1, 2024
  2. Be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student for the 2024–2025 school year
  3. Did not receive a Textbook Grant in 2023–2024

Members of the Black Alumni Network will review applications, select finalists to be interviewed, and set up interviews on April 13, 2024. Finalists must be available for an interview; students not available for this part of the process will not be considered for grants. After those sessions, a final decision on recipients of the 2024 Textbook Grants will be made, and those who interview will be notified during the following week.

Please fill out this form to apply for a 2024 Textbook Grant. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 29.
