Community Scholarships for Students of Color

From its start 24 years ago, Trinity has aspired to be a richly diverse school that welcomes all who value a high-quality education within a thoughtful, ecumenical framework of Christian faith and conviction. Our community of learners is growing, and we want to do all we can to ensure that Trinity’s student body reflects the diversity of the greater Durham and Chapel Hill area.

We are pleased to offer the Community Scholarships for Students of Color for applicants to grades 6–11 who have strong academic records, love to learn and desire to be fully involved in their school’s community, in addition to demonstrating high levels of integrity, character, and leadership. Each year, scholarship winners will receive up to $2,500 toward tuition. Scholarship awards are renewable each year until graduation, provided that the student remains in good academic and personal standing.

NCSEAA Opportunities

Trinity School is a participant in three North Carolina programs that expand school choice for eligible students in kindergarten through grade 12. The Opportunity Scholarship, Disabilities Grant, and Education Savings Account can help cover private or independent school tuition and required fees.

The Opportunity Scholarship Program expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in Kindergarten through grade 12. This program provides funding of up to $4,200 per year for eligible children who choose to attend a participating school.

The Disabilities Grant Program is a program for eligible students with disabilities in Kindergarten through grade 12 to provide an option for parents to pay tuition, fees, and some other expenses at a participating school. Children who are placed in a nonpublic school by their parents do not have a right to receive all of the special education and related services that they would receive if enrolled in the public schools. Likewise, a private school does not have a legal obligation to provide special education and related services to students with disabilities. Parents are encouraged to select a nonpublic school carefully and to establish a plan prior to enrollment which meets their child’s educational needs.

The Education Savings Account is a program for eligible students with disabilities in Kindergarten through grade 12 to provide an option for parents to pay tuition, fees, and some other expenses at a participating private or independent school.
