R. and J. Iwema Education Scholarship

Rich and Jane Iwema, retired educator and registered nurse respectively, established this scholarship for a student who plans to pursue a career in teaching math and/or science. Rich and Jane are both Calvin alumni, as are members of their family. The memories of the Christian environment at Calvin have led them to give this scholarship. Rich was a teacher of science and math in both the Christian and public schools for 38 years.

Basic criteria:

  • entering junior or senior year
  • cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher
  • pursuing a degree in the education program with the intention of teaching math or science in grades 6-12
  • financial need is considered

Renewal criteria: This scholarship is automatically renewable if the scholarship criteria continues to be met. Renewal is subject to funding availability.
