Our Opportunities

THE APPLICATION IS AVAILABLE STARTING DECEMBER 1, 2022. To apply for Calvin University scholarships, click the yellow “Sign In” button. You must be admitted to Calvin and have a Calvin user ID in order to sign in and complete your application. You may save your application at any time by clicking “Save and Keep Editing”. Once you have completed both the General and the Prospective, First-Year Student Application or the Current Student Application, you are automatically considered for ALL of our scholarships if you meet the criteria. You will NOT see a list of scholarships that you have been automatically matched to and will be considered for. Rather, the list is ONLY some additional recommended scholarships that you can apply for if you meet some additional criteria. These scholarships require additional questions or information. If you have questions regarding the application, please contact scholarships@calvin.edu. Most scholarships are typically awarded in mid to late March of each year for the following academic year.

The list below are ALL scholarship opportunities at Calvin. Please do not use this page to apply for scholarships. Rather, apply for scholarships using the ‘Recommended’ opportunities page once you have completed your General Application and the Prospective, First-Year Student Application or the Current Student Application. Once signed in, you will also be able to view and apply for some specific external awards, including the Hugh and Eve Meeter Calvinism Award, by selecting “External” under the “Opportunities” tab.
