Few student Award Winners from 2016-2017 at the Awards Reception in Seeley Hall

On November 16, recipients of 2016-2017 admission and in-course scholarships and awards gathered with alumni, faculty, staff and friends for the Trinity College Student Awards Reception. Congratulations to all our student award winners on your achievements and awards.

Trinity extends a sincere thank you to all our donors whose generosity allows the best and brightest students to continue to thrive at the College.

“To our alumni donors, thank you so much for investing in our students. Student Awards are one of the most vital ways we support the incredible young people who attend Trinity College,” Provost Mayo Moran said. “On behalf of Trinity College, and especially of our students, I want to thank you for the tremendous difference that your generosity makes both now and in the future.”

The majority of the more than $1 million in student awards at Trinity (including scholarships, prizes and bursaries) come from philanthropic donations from our alumni community. Reunion classes often choose to commemorate their special anniversaries by establishing, or adding to, student awards. This was the first year the 6T5 Scholarship was awarded – the Class of 1965 created this award for their 50th reunion in 2015.

Below is a list of students who were awarded application-based in-course scholarships for the 2016-2017 academic year:

Bronskill Prize: Nishani Chankar

Each year, Trinity College offers its students more than $1 million in student awards, including scholarships, prizes and bursaries. Not only do these awards allow Trinity to attract the best and brightest students to the College, scholarships and financial aid enable students to flourish while they are here. Among the awards, the College offers approximately 100 entrance scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,500, a number of bursaries ranging from $500 to $5,000, and approximately 400 in-course and graduation awards for exceptional student achievement. Although students are automatically considered for many of the in-course Trinity scholarships at the end of their first, second and third years, there are a number of scholarships requiring student application, including the William and Nona Heaslip Scholarships and the John Harvey Whiteside Scholarship, which are awarded to three second-year Trinity students and are valued at $15,000/year (twice renewable).
