The following scholarships and grants are available to students enrolling at Trinity for the first time in the 2013-2014 academic year. All institutional aid is subject to coordination with federal, state, institutional, and outside aid policies.
I. ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS
- There are different levels of Academic Scholarships with different eligibility requirements and amounts. See each individual scholarship below for more information. For complete eligibility requirements please see the Financial Aid section of the catalog.

- In order to qualify for an academic scholarship, a student must have a minimum ACT score of 20 or SAT score of 1390 and a High School and/or previous College GPA of at least 3.0.
- Students must enroll full-time to be eligible for an Academic Scholarship.
- Undergraduate Academic Scholarships are renewable each year by application, for the same amount if the student maintains minimum cumulative GPA requirements and continues to enroll full-time for a maximum of 8 semesters.
