Scholarships and Prizes
The Jubilee Scholarship This scholarship was founded in 1851 by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, in commemoration of the sesquicentenary of its incorporation. It is tenable only in the Divinity Class of Trinity College, and is awarded to the student registered at Trinity who obtains the best degree in the Faculty of Arts.
The Dean Grasett Scholarship
This scholarship, the bequest of the late Colonel H.J. Grasett, C.M.G., is awarded to a student who has graduated in Arts in a recognized university to assist him or her in taking a course in the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College. The scholarship is tenable for two years.
Prizes and General Scholarships
Prizes and other scholarships are awarded by the College at the annual Convocation for Degrees in May, on the recommendation of the Faculty of Divinity's Committee of the Teaching Staff. The awards recognize highest academic achievement in a course, discipline, or academic year. To be eligible for a discipline prize, the student will have taken more than the required number of courses in a department. For year prizes, students may not have any courses standing deferred, and will have participated in the life of the community.
