Mary Louise Huizenga Scholarship

This scholarship was established by the children of John S. and Anne Huizenga to honor their sister, Mary Louise Huizenga, who was born with Downs Syndrome.

  • preference will be given to persons desiring to be employed in a special education program in the school setting or to those needing additional training in special education. Current employment in either a special education school or a regular education setting is acceptable.
  • persons employed in a Christian Learning Center network will be encouraged to apply

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.
