What is the College Scholarship program?

The Trinity Kids College Scholarship program is designed to provide financial aid for young men and women on their personal journey of success by continuing their educational pursuits in a college or university program. If you have a strong interest in supporting the educational pursuits of children who have been through the Trinity Kids programs, please consider making a donation and designating those funds to be used with our Trinity Kids College Scholarship program.
