Critical funds provide meaningful support to the best and brightest students from all backgrounds who deserve a chance to have a Trinity education, regardless of their economic situations or the financial pressures that may arise during their time here.
- The Student Accessibility Fund guarantees that students have equitable access to all aspects of Trinity's campus by providing reasonable accommodations for all levels of physical and academic ability.
- Since 2010, Trinity’s Summer Bridge FYE Program has given first-generation and underrepresented students a chance to come to campus early and transition to college life. These students begin their First Year Experience class and receive free housing, books, and meals during the program. They’re also introduced to the writing and time-management skills that are so critical to academic success.
- The Student Technology Fund provides eligible students with technology needs: laptop, headphones, WIFI hotspot, for example, which are critical for current college students to be successful in their day-to-day studies.
- Trinity established the Necessity Fund in 2018 to provide first-year students with toiletries, linens, and essential items for day-to-day dorm living. Eligible students can opt-in, and the items will be waiting for them when they arrive at their residence hall on move-in day.
- The Raymond Judd Student Emergency Fund, named in honor of Chaplain Emeritus Rev. Raymond Judd ’56, helps students who are challenged to afford and access necessary resources for remote learning, housing, transportation, and basic needs, or those who face other difficulties. 100% of these funds are available to support our students through graduation or during the next step in their journey. Funding decisions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis by Chapel, Student Life, and Counseling Services staff.
