Our Opportunities

To apply for Calvin College 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 complete the application, scholarships will be recommended to you if you meet the basic criteria. You may choose to apply for these scholarships if you feel you meet all of the criteria. There are also many scholarship opportunities that you do not have to apply to, but will be automatically matched to you after you complete your application. If you have questions regarding the application, please contact scholarships@calvin.edu

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. Once signed in, you will also be able to view and apply to some specific external awards, including the Hugh and Eve Meeter Calvinism Award, by selecting “External” under the “Opportunities” tab.
