Jacob and Rena Van Dellen Scholarship

This scholarship was established by Mr. Theodore Van Dellen in honor of his parents, Jacob and Rena Van Dellen. Jacob and Rena Van Dellen moved back to Grand Rapids (where they had been born) so that their three children could obtain a Christian education, first in the Grand Rapids Christian Schools and then at Calvin. Their legacy continues to following generations.

Basic criteria:

  • entering junior or senior year
  • cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher
  • pursuing a pre-law program or a degree in political science or international relations

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.
