Gifts that transform lives

Endowed scholarships are about as direct as it gets, making it possible for a specific individual to become a student at Hope and learn and grow into the future beyond.

The impact is incalculable. Every graduate goes on to shape the lives of others, who in turn touch still others, a continuum extending and expanding in perpetuity.

The statistics convey a sense of the scale at the beginning of the process. Some 60 percent of Hope students, more than 1,900 each year, receive financial assistance based on need. A total of 90 percent of the students at Hope, nearly 2,900, receive aid based on a combination of need and merit.



Christopher Mattson of Muskegon, Mich., is majoring in biology and plans to become a physician.

He’s been supported by the Calvin ’37 and Rachel VanderWerf Scholarship Fund.

“Hope College has had a tremendous impact on the person that I am today. Here, I have experienced a rigorous academic load which has challenged me to aggressively engage my classes. I have also been fortunate enough to be a member of the baseball team here at Hope; the honor of competing as a student-athlete at this institution is wonderful.”

“The relationships that I have developed here at Hope College have made me a better person.”


“Without the scholarship assistance I received to attend Hope, I simply would be unable to attend this amazing institution.”

“When I applied to Hope as a high school senior, I knew that my attendance here would, at least in part, be dependent on the financial aid offered to me. My sponsors have truly given me a life-changing opportunity, one which I will do my best to validate through my actions as a student, and eventually as a physician.”


Jessenia Martinez-Olmeda of
Holland, Mich., is majoring in secondary education with a Spanish major and English minor, Jessenia Martinez-Olmeda plans to teach high-need, low-income students in the United States.

She’s been supported by the Esther Mulder & Henry P. Wackerbarth Memorial Scholarship.

“When I met with a couple of professors at Hope after I applied, I knew that I wanted to come to Hope. Both professors were very welcoming, were supportive of my career goals, and answered all of my questions.

“The scholarship assistance I have received at Hope College has enabled me to attend Hope. I am very thankful for all of the assistance I have had throughout my four years here at Hope.”



Christopher Jackson of Keego Harbor, Mich., is an accounting and business management major. He plans to seek a position in marketing or human resources after graduation, but longer-term hopes to become a self-employed entrepreneur.

Christopher has been supported through both the Max and Connie Boersma Scholarship Fund and the Vern and Isla Schipper Scholarship Fund.

“Hope has given me internship opportunities within different companies to establish relationships with people within the company and prove my worth—what I can bring to a particular company, based on the education provided at Hope.”

“Another important aspect is that the Hope community strives to establish relationships with those investing time in their education.”

“Relationships have been everything for me and my experience at Hope.”

“This assistance was especially important to me, because otherwise the positives in life that are coming into fruition would not have been a possibility.”

An organ-performance major, Leah Hottel, of Westlake Ohio, has appreciated the way that Hope has helped expand her career vision, with possibilities including graduate school and teaching and also music management; she also knows that she wants to continue to share her gift of music with a church.

Leah has been supported through The Claryce Rozeboom Memorial Organ Scholarship, the David P. Roossien Organ Scholarship and the Ruth Haidt Hughes Memorial Organ Scholarship.

“The number one thing that has made a difference in my education here at Hope is the individual attention each student gets. I feel closer to my faculty advisor and other members of the music department than I would have ever imagined possible. I have developed a relationship with them that has not only bolstered my knowledge of music, but encompassed other areas of my life.

“The news of my endowed scholarship… helped secure in my mind that this was not only a wonderful and affordable education, but where I really belonged. Three years later it still astonishes me that I could ever have looked at a different school. Hope has been a blessing, a true gift from God.”




Majoring in Japanese, Seth Carlson of Marcellus, Mich., hopes to pursue a graduate degree in anthropology with a focus on East Asia. He is open to opportunities in politics, working with the government or teaching.

Seth has been supported by the The Benjamin H. Van Andel Scholarship Fund.

“Without financial assistance through the endowed scholarship program, I would still be at home, working on the cattle farm, and probably be working another job just to take part-time classes at a community college. Not that home is bad or looked down on in any sense, but I would not have been able to travel abroad twice, meet the wonderful people whom I call my best friends, and start preparing myself for my life; a life of peace, passion, and commitment to community and personal growth.”

Majoring in civil engineering, Luke Hoogeveen of Orange City, Iowa, is still considering his post-Hope options, with graduate school among the possibilities.

Luke has been supported by The Hinga-Boersma
Family Scholarship.

“I came to Hope because I was not completely sure I wanted to be an engineer. The opportunities here set Hope apart from other colleges. The undergraduate research program here is a great way to get experience in your field of study.

“The scholarship assistance is one of the biggest reasons I was able to attend Hope… It made the cost of attending Hope for me comparable to a state school.”



Carmen Hirsch of Highmore, S.D., is an exercise-science major who plans to go on to physical therapy school and a career as a physical therapist.

Carmen has been supported all four years through the Charlotte A. “Chuckie” Mulder Scholarship Fund

“The small class sizes allow you to get to know your professors as well as your peers on a personal level, and they get to know you, too.”

“ Coming from a small school, where I was one of 25 graduates, Hope gives me a feeling of comfort, as it’s like the small community where I came from, where everyone cares for each other. With regards to my major, the kinesiology department is very accommodating and we are lucky to have a well-educated staff that only wants their students to succeed.”

“I come from a farming and ranching family from rural South Dakota, and without the assistance of scholarships, I would not have been able to attend Hope.”
