Our Philosophy

The Trinity Sport Scholarship is designed to support an environment in which student athletes can excel in both competition and their studies. We recognise the needs and challenges of these student athletes and strive to give them the support needed to make consistent progress and perform at the highest level.

Why Choose Trinity

Our Scholarship program is specifically designed around you as an individual. We recognise that coursework and sporting commitments differ between scholars. We utilise expertise and services in multiple areas to ensure that you receive relevant and effective support. We aim to make your years at Trinity a productive and beneficial experience. We focus on finding the balance between training and study to ensure your success, both in sport and academics.
