Village at 48 West

The Village at 48 West is a local Allendale apartment and townhome community. They serve the housing needs of those who attend Grand Valley State University. They have four primary core values which include: connecting with others, enjoying the broader community, encouraging personal growth, and offering meaningful services to others. It is because of these values that they support high school graduates who are pursing higher education, and are committed to the success of our student community. The Village at 48 West established the Freshman Scholarship to encourage promising students who demonstrate leadership and community service to attend Grand Valley State University.


“I balanced school as well as two jobs to help pay for school and to have been awarded this scholarship is more helpful than you know. I plan to major in psychology with a minor in biology and Spanish in the Frederik Meijer Honors College this year. After graduation, I’d like to go into clinical psychology or research child development and this scholarship money will help make that possible!”
