Henry Van Andel Memorial Scholarship

Mrs. Dorthea Vergeer established this scholarship in memory of her father, Henry J.G. Van Andel, professor of Dutch language, literature and culture at Calvin from 1915-1950. Many of his students began with him a life-long journey of enjoyment in fine arts. It is Mrs. Vergeer’s hope that this scholarship will provide encouragement to young Calvin students who wish to pursue studies in art.

  • first consideration will be given to students majoring in art education, second consideration will be given to students majoring in studio art
