Diekema Family Scholarship

Anthony J. Diekema was president of Calvin for 20 years, from 1976 through 1995. During the years of his presidency, President Diekema maintained a strong interest in and support for student aid programs. He also was one of the leaders on campus in seeking to bring about a more diverse student body. Because of these interests and the special needs of these students, this scholarship was established to assist exceptionally needy students who have the ability and potential to benefit from a Calvin education but would not have the opportunity without a scholarship like this.

Basic criteria:

  • entering freshman year
  • cumulative high school GPA of 3.00 or higher and granted regular admission
  • financial need is required
  • if the above requirements are met, preference will be given to North American ethnic minority students

Renewal criteria: This scholarship is automatically renewable if the student has a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher, is making satisfactory academic progress, and continues to demonstrate financial need (three years only). Renewal is subject to funding availability.
