Elizabeth and Wesley DeYoung Scholarship

This scholarship was established by the children of Elizabeth and Wesley DeYoung to celebrate their lives and contributions. Elizabeth and Wesley loved Calvin and their faith was always most fervently on display when conveying God’s truth to new generations. Elizabeth and Wesley found a natural affinity, an exceptional passion, and commitment for expressing their faith to and nurturing the faith of adolescents. Their experience as church youth leaders was formational in their Christian journey, both in what they offered and in the blessings they received. A scholarship for the purpose of encouraging ministry among youth will honor their work and memory.

Basic criteria:

  • entering sophomore, junior, or senior year
  • cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher
  • currently doing youth ministry and/or demonstrating interest (Young Life, Intervarsity, ministry among peers at Calvin, etc.)
  • demonstrate activity and plans for youth ministry
  • 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.
