Arnold, Elva and Doris Bakker Scholarship

This scholarship was established by Doris Bakker to honor her parents, Arnold and Elva Bakker, and encourage students to pursue careers in the field of nursing as well as to be ambassadors for Christ. “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” (II Corinthians 5:20). Doris spent 49 years in nursing, with many short term foreign mission experiences. While not all of the family could personally go to the mission field, this scholarship is meant to encourage others to take up the challenge.

Basic criteria:

  • entering sophomore, junior, or senior year (with junior and seniors receiving first preference)
  • pursuing a degree in nursing, pre-physician assistant, pre-med or another health related field
  • demonstrate an interest in medical missions
  • financial need is considered

Renewal criteria: This scholarship is not renewable.
