The F. W. and Elsie L. Heyl Science Scholarship Fund was established through the will of Dr. and Mrs. Frederick W. Heyl to promote the education of young scholars in the fields of science and nursing. To date, more than 400 Heyl scholarships and/or fellowships have been awarded at the undergraduate and graduate level.
The Heyl Undergraduate Scholarships provide tuition, fees, college housing and a book allowance (renewable for a maximum of four years) to study the natural sciences, mathematics or computer science at Kalamazoo College or nursing at Western Michigan University Bronson School of Nursing.
The Heyl Graduate Fellowships provide tuition (renewable for a maximum of four years) for graduate studies in certain (usually chemistry-related) disciplines at Yale University. These are available to any graduate of Kalamazoo College majoring in one of the exact sciences.
