Dorothy Duthler Nursing Scholarship

Dorothy Duthler established this nursing scholarship to promote the things that have deeply enriched her life: caring for people facing health crises; practicing her deep and abiding faith; and honoring her beloved school, Calvin College. Dorothy has had a life-long passion for the field of medicine and is challenged by the analysis, problem solving, and diagnosis that are required in the medical profession. Dorothy’s deep faith has played an integral role in her life as encouraged and prayed for those around her; and faced her own serious illnesses. She takes great comfort in her faithful Savior and through God’s promises found in Philippians 4:6-7 (“Do not be anxious about anything. But in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”). As a strong person of faith, she welcomes opportunities to openly share her testimony. Through this scholarship, Dorothy wishes to enable a nursing student to complete a B.S.N. at Calvin College, where he or she can receive training to be a skilled medical professional, rooted in Christ’s love and called to serve others in His name.
