The First Generation Scholarship Fund supports students who will become the first in their family to graduate from college. This year, approximately 12 percent of Trinity undergraduates are first-generation students. The First Generation Scholarship Fund benefits not only the recipients but the Trinity community as a whole, which is enriched by the remarkable diversity these students bring to campus.
As part of Trinity’s 150th Anniversary festivities, the campus participated in the national First-Generation College Celebration. The celebration is part of Trinity’s initiative to give first-generation students mentorship, support, and recognition.
