Eligibility:

In order to be considered for education department scholarships, you must:

  1. Have completed EDUC-202 or be currently in the class and have applied to the teacher education program.
  2. Have a junior or senior standing as of September of the scholarship year.
  3. Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75. Anything less will prevent you from being a serious contender. Please also note that most scholarships require a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  4. Submit two recommendations from Calvin professors, one from an education professor, if possible. This is part of the application process. Please don't wait until the last minute to ask professors to complete these for you!
  5. International and Post-BA candidates are welcome to apply.
  6. Candidates must be enrolled full-time (12-17 semester hours) at least one semester in the upcoming academic year (fall and/or spring) to be eligible for scholarships. The application will ask for your full-time status for each semester. If you are only full-time one semester, you are eligible for a half scholarship.

TEACH grant

The TEACH Grant is a federal program that provides grants to students who plan to teach full time in high-need subject areas at schools serving students from low-income families.

How to apply for scholarships

The application forms for named scholarships are available every year beginning December 1 and must be submitted by February 1. All of the scholarships for first-year students and current students are available online. All students who will be enrolled next academic year are encouraged to apply.
