Anthony VanderLugt Family
This scholarship was established to provide dedicated engineering students who are in their third or fourth year at Calvin with the opportunity to broaden their horizons and look beyond what they may have perceived as their original options.
Anthony VanderLugt earned his BS in 1959 at Calvin and the University of Michigan as part of Calvin’s 3+2 program in engineering. He ultimately earned a doctorate in Applied Physics and at his death was a Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at North Carolina State University. He came to Calvin from a farm family in rural Michigan. While at Calvin, he learned that he had academic potential, that he could compete with other students, and that there was a world out there where he could apply his talents. This scholarship is established to honor his memory and to help other students like him who are searching for a way to use their talents in engineering.
