Each year, Trinity gives monetary awards to qualified members who are entering an institution of higher education. These awards recognize attendance and service to Trinity Parish during the applicant's high school years. To qualify for an award, these criteria must be met:
Applicants must be high school seniors at the time of application, and must be going on to an institution of higher education.
Academic performance of a C average or better is required.
Applicants must provide a high school transcript.
Applicants must be communicants at Trinity and must be regular in attendance.
Applicants must write a brief letter describing their service to Trinity.
Service to Trinity during the applicant's high school years is of major consideration. The applicant might have served as an acolyte, usher, Sunday school teacher's assistant, nursery attendant, choir member, or in other ways. The intention is for the applicant to have served Trinity on a more or less regular basis, not just a one-time event. The award would be based primarily upon the applicant's attendance and service to Trinity. One successful applicant might attend church every week, with little direct service to the Parish, while another successful applicant may attend only occasionally, but be very active on a specific service committee. The GFS Award will be made payable to the student upon receipt of evidence indicating first semester enrollment, and will be issued at or before the beginning of the semester. Find application below.
