Providing scholars a tangible community of support through mentoring,connection to purpose, and financial assistance.

Trinity Education Foundation provides vital financial support coupled with professional coaching and guidance for underserved college students planning to attend accredited Christian colleges and universities in the Northwest.  We also support those specifically called to full-time ministry and attending Christian seminaries based in the United States.

“… Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

We believe that every person enters life with a unique, God-given missional calling. Those who embrace their calling can change the world. But they often need guidance to discover and fulfill it. That’s why the Trinity Scholars Program exists. The program helps students identify their innate vocational talents and then craft an academic curriculum that suits their unique identity. Dedicated professional coaches are provided to guide them through all four years of their college experience, increasing the likelihood that they’ll complete their college journey. This important component distinguishes the Foundation’s approach from other well-intentioned programs that only provide financial support. Helping students complete their education promotes the most effective use of scholarship funds.

Your College Dreams Start Here!

At Trinity Education Foundation we know that preparing for college can be overwhelming. We want to help you fulfill your dreams of college and achieve a life-long fulfilling career. Our scholarships are designed to significantly offset the cost of attending college and/or seminary. For our undergrad scholars we provide vocational guidance utilizing the PathwayU assessment and providing a professional coach who will partner with you throughout your college journey.

Not sure what degree you want to pursue? No worries! Our process will help you define your path forward.
