College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Programs
Every student admitted into the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is considered for scholarships at the time of admission.
Currently, about 90% of the student body receives some type of financial assistance:
- Scholarships for Entering CAS Students
- Scholarships and Grants for Returning CAS Students
- Special Scholarships
- Endowed and Term Scholarships
Trinity Leadership Scholarship
The Trinity Leadership Scholarship is offered to every new first year student who is admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences, Trinity’s undergraduate college for women, starting with the class that enters in fall 2016. The $10,000 ($5,000 each semester) scholarship will be renewed each year as long students maintain satisfactory academic progress as a full-time student at Trinity, with a minimum 2.0 GPA, and complete their FAFSA every year.
Full-time College of Arts and Sciences students currently enrolled may have been awarded one of these scholarships at the time of admission. These awards will be renewed every year that students maintain the requirements for renewal. Students will receive only one form of merit scholarship and the amounts will remain constant each year throughout their enrollment. Students receiving these special scholarships must be fulltime students and maintain satisfactory academic progress.
Global Leadership Scholarship
Once awarded, the Global Leadership Scholarship is renewed annually based on continued academic distinction of maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA.
Once awarded, the Presidential Scholarship is renewed annually based on continued academic distinction of maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA.
It is expected that recipients of this award will continue to demonstrate their leadership talents by service to the University community.
Aspiring Leader Award
Aspiring Leader awards are renewed for students who have continued demonstrated financial need and leadership potential.
Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship
A designated scholarship program has been established for members of Phi Theta Kappa, the community University and two-year University honor society. Contact the Office of Admissions for further information regarding this award.
Transfer grants are renewed for students who have continued demonstrated financial need.
College of Arts and Sciences students receiving the following special scholarships must be full-time students and maintain satisfactory academic progress each semester in order to remain eligible for the award. A separate application for these scholarships is not required.
D.F. Antonelli, Jr., and Judith D. Antonelli Scholarship
This endowed scholarship fund was established in 1986 by Mr. and Mrs. Dominic Antonelli. Recipients must be full-time College of Arts and Sciences undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need and backgrounds considered culturally and/or economically disadvantaged. Preference will be given to members of minority groups.
The Alumnae Award is offered on the basis of need to relatives of Trinity Alumnae.
Girl Scout Leadership Scholarships
Trinity has a close relationship with the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital and because of our strong network and similar mission to educate women and promote women’s accomplishments, we are proud to offer four levels of Girl Scout Awards.
If you have successfully completed your Gold Award in Girl Scouting and have been accepted into the University of Arts & Sciences, you will receive an award of $5,000 annually.
If you have successfully completed your Silver Award in Girl Scouting and have been accepted into the University of Arts & Sciences, you will receive an award of $4,000 annually.
If you are an active participant in Girl Scouting and have been accepted into the University of Arts & Sciences, you will receive an award of $3,000 annually.
These awards may not be combined and will be factored in to your overall merit-based award from Trinity.
Helen and Marie F. Rotterman, Class of 1904, Scholarship Trust
This trust was established by the estate of Marie F. Rotterman, Class of 1904, to provide scholarships to qualified Catholic girls from the Dayton, Ohio, metropolitan area. Awards are made yearly in amounts depending on need and available funds. A personal interview and approval of the Trustees of the trust are also required.
The following special scholarships are named either for their donor or in recognition of others and are made possible by the generosity and support of alumnae and friends of Trinity. These scholarship awards are given to Trinity College of Arts and Sciences students who demonstrate financial need and who also meet the additional selection criteria specified by the donor of the gift. Endowed scholarships are funded by the ongoing income earned from the core gift; term scholarships are one-time gifts. The Office of Student Financial Services chooses recipients from among all qualified applicants for financial aid.
These special gifts underwrite in whole or in part scholarship and grant awards from Trinity sources. The receipt of one of these awards is recognition not only of financial need but also academic distinction. So as to recognize as many qualified students as possible, these awards are usually not renewed from year to year.
A separate application for these scholarships is not required; all full-time College of Arts and Sciences applicants for financial assistance are automatically considered for these awards.
