Joel S. Vander Sloot Memorial Scholarship

Jack and Joyce Vander Sloot established this scholarship in memory of their son, Joel, who lost his courageous battle with cancer on May 3, 2003. Joel, owner of Motophoto, a film processing business in Grand Rapids, MI, provided Calvin students with a wonderful service by picking up their film orders on campus several times a week and returning their pictures the same day. Mr. and Mrs. Vander Sloot have been long-time supporters of Christian education from the elementary grades through college and established this scholarship to share the blessings that God has given them.

Basic criteria:

  • entering junior or senior year
  • majoring in studio art, with first preference given to students concentrating in photography
  • financial need is considered

Renewal criteria: Students who wish to be considered for renewal must file a new application each year and will be given equal consideration with other candidates.
