Larry and Sharlene Nyhoff Scholarship in Computer Science

Larry Nyhoff began teaching mathematics at Calvin College in 1963. As student interest in computing began to grow in the early 1970’s, Calvin began introducing computer-programming courses, which gradually led to a computing “track” in the mathematics major. Professor Nyhoff taught many of these courses and helped develop a complete program in computer science and the eventual formation of a separate Computer Science Department. Professor Nyhoff and his wife Sharlene established this scholarship to encourage students who plan to pursue a major or minor in one of the programs in computer science.

Basic criteria:

  • entering freshman year
  • cumulative GPA of 2.80 or higher
  • planning to major or minor in one of the computer science programs
  • financial need is considered

Renewal criteria: This scholarship is not renewable.
