Don & Nancy Lubbers Opportunity Scholarship

The purpose of this scholarship is to attract the brightest students from middle income families and help widen their pathway to graduation. This two fold purpose will allow the University to be competitive among other insitutions that are chosen by highly accompilshed high school graduates, while also helping the student from middle-income families avoid indebtedness. Even very bright students, whose families do not qualify for federal need-based aid, often face the difficult choice of burdening their families with further debt or not completing their degrees solely because of economic reasons. To be eligible, students must:

  • Be admitted to GVSU
  • Incoming students must have a high school GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale
  • Enrolled full-time
  • Be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress
  • Preference will be given to students that demonstrate the largest unmet need

This scholarship may be renewed without reapplication provided the recipient continues to meet the qualifications of the scholarship and maintain a 3.0 GPA for a maximum of eight semesters.
