Residential College Scholarship application PDF

The College seeks to offer the Trinity experience to the most deserving students, regardless of their financial means, and to welcome students of diverse backgrounds from across Australia and around the world.

The generosity of many donors makes it possible for the College to offer a significant number of scholarships. Around $1 million was provided in scholarships and assistance last year for remission of fees. While there are some awards for academic excellence, most funds are designated for those who need financial support.
