Trinity offers need-based and merit-based assistance to the most highly qualified first-year applicants who are neither U.S citizens nor U.S permanent residents.  When reviewing admission applications for international students, Trinity does take into account whether or not an applicant has requested financial assistance; applying for need-based aid places students in a very competitive applicant pool. Consequently, it is in the best interest of the student to be honest about their family's ability to fund a Trinity education. Failure to do so may jeopardize a student's chance of admission to Trinity. Financial aid award notification will be received with your offer of admission. Financial aid is not available for foreign transfer students, so Trinity does not accept transfer applications from foreign students who require financial aid.

Merit scholarships are based on the strength of the student's academic profile as measured by the following criteria: rigor of and performance in secondary school coursework, standardized test scores, strength of essay, involvement outside of the classroom, and recommendations from school officials. Your application for admission is also your application for merit scholarships; there are no additional forms required. Trinity is an NCAA Division III school and does not offer athletic scholarships. However, the university does have excellent teams in both men's and women's sports.

Need-based financial aid is based on the demonstrated financial support of the student's family, as established by their Statement of Financial Support/International Student Financial Aid Application. The College Board's International Student Financial Aid Application is required for all foreign applicants and must be submitted with your application.
