Harry Kok Family
Mrs. Harry Kok established one of Calvin’s first named scholarships in 1952, honoring her late husband, Dr. Harry Kok, who was a 1922 graduate of Calvin College and the University of Michigan Medical School. After supporting 64 Calvin students over the years, this award has now become part of the Calvin College/University of Michigan Medical School Scholarship, which brings together Dr. Kok’s deep respect for both institutions and honors his love of medicine and care of people.
This award will enable Calvin to offer a full-ride scholarship to Calvin College for a student in the pre-medicine program, who will then be eligible for an interview at the University of Michigan Medical School. This partnership, designed to benefit both institutions, will prepare Calvin students for success in medical school and their future medical career.
Each academic year, one first-time undergraduate student will be offered this prestigious opportunity through a highly competitive process including a thorough evaluation of their current academic abilities and career aspirations within the medical field.
