Cornelia and Marvin Vanden Bosch Scholarship

Cornelia (Scholten) Vanden Bosch established this scholarship in 1981, shortly after the death of her husband, Dr. Marvin P. Vanden Bosch (Calvin, 1933), and in response to a grandson’s accidental injury and subsequent disability. It was Mrs. Vanden Bosch’s desire that students with disabilities be helped to obtain a Calvin education in spite of their disabilities. Although Mrs. Vanden Bosch is not college-educated, she is an avid supporter of Christian education, and particularly of Calvin, as was her late husband.
