Grand Rapids Community Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships annually primarily to Kent County students.

One of the 500 scholarships is the Roger and Jacquelyn Vander Laan Family Scholarship which is aimed at people who could benefit from education after high school, but are least able to afford it.

They noticed the importance of support when the higher education expenses are in question, especially to the deserving students who show great education results.
