Stephanie L. Dykstra Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in memory of Stephanie Dykstra, a Calvin student who passed away unexpectedly on December 17, 1999, after suffering a pulmonary embolus. Stephanie left unfulfilled the typical dreams and expectations of a 19 year-old, yet in her death, the family and friends who mourned her passing became more clearly aware that Stephanie had chosen a deeper investment than her own dreams and expectations. This scholarship was to recognize students who are clearly storing up treasures in heaven through their service and friendship to people in local communities and thus are recognized by their friends, teachers, and mentors as people who have truly trusted in God as their only comfort in life and death.
