Lighthouse Scholarship

This scholarship was established in gratitude to God for the role of Calvin College in the lives of three generations of the Vander Haak/Grit family. The family wishes to assist students who show their devotion to the Lord through their acts of service to others around them. The name of the scholarship is taken from the scripture passage found in Matthew 5:16: “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

Basic criteria:

  • entering sophomore, junior, or senior year
  • cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher
  • someone with a servant heart who goes above and beyond serving others. Motivated by a love for God and for people, this may be a person who often serves quietly, without recognition.
  • 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.
