Thirty-two top high school students were finalists for this year’s Founders’ Scholarship. Students and their parents attended a banquet in the Grand Lobby of the Ozinga Chapel on Thursday, February 4, with a variety of activities planned throughout the weekend.
The 2010 Founders’ Scholarship recipients will be announced soon.
The award provides a renewable full-tuition scholarship for two incoming freshmen who have demonstrated consistently high academic achievement and who will perpetuate the mission of Trinity Christian College in thought, word, and deed.
Applicants for the Founders’ Scholarship must rank in the top five percent of their graduating class or achieve a 3.8 grade-point average; score a minimum of 30 on the ACT or 1320 on the SAT; exhibit leadership in their church, school, or community; and display evidence of personal faith in Jesus Christ.
Scholarship candidates spent time off campus having dinner at the Chicago Semester location and enjoying late-night bowling. On campus, students were immersed in life at Trinity, worshipping, dining, and rooming with current Trinity students. Candidates also participated in a service project at the Children’s Hunger Fund, one of Trinity’s many service opportunities.
