Victoria Ramirez
“The Trinity Scholarship is allowing me to attend George Fox University a smaller University with a Christian environment.  The cost of college is very expensive, and my parents can only help so much because they have three other children.  I am so grateful for the generous Trinity Scholarship that will allow me to focus on my goal of becoming an elementary teacher, where I can make a difference in the next generation.”

"This scholarship award goes deeper than a financial burden lifted off of my shoulders; this scholarship actually deepened my faith. Because of this scholarship, I now have the ability to focus my attention on what matters most, following Jesus, my family, and my studies, without worrying about how I will be able to fund school while also providing for my family."

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the generous Trinity Scholarship. This scholarship is important for allowing me to attend Saint Martin's and to pursue a career in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering. I feel as though Chelan High School has prepared me for the rigors of college classes, and I look forward to gaining knowledge in my field to make a difference in the renewable energy sector.”

“I'm really thankful for the opportunity to be selected by Trinity Education Foundation to receive this scholarship. I really needed it to help pay for college and it is going to go a long way in doing that. Not only do I appreciate the scholarship money, but I also am very excited to have a personal coach/mentor that I will get to talk to throughout my college career. Thank you, Trinity Education Foundation, for helping me pursue my Christian education.”

“I am overjoyed to have received a Seminary scholarship for 2021/2022 academic year. Foundations like this are an indispensable gift for seminarians like me preparing to serve God's church in the future. I am deeply appreciative of your financial support and to have been chosen is a great honor. By the grace of God, I will strive to be an excellent steward of this opportunity and blessing.”

Timothy Omwega
“My classes had just been dropped due to a fee balance this summer. What this scholarship means to me is that I can now register for classes and continue to accomplish my studies on time and pursue my dream of being a world changer for the Lord. It is not easy for international students especially someone like me to self-support my studies here. It is expensive and stressful. You have lightened my load and I can now focus on getting my Master of Divinity.”

"I desire to inspire those around me, especially through teaching, and to share the joy of learning with the next generation! I believe George Fox and its honors program is the perfect opportunity to grow in my faith and pursue teaching in a safe, Christ focused environment. I am excited for how it will shape and challenge me! Above all, my largest calling in life is to follow Jesus wherever he may lead me, to actively engage in relationship with Him, and to love him and others in every facet of my life!!"

"It was not until high school that I started to develop a clearer picture of what that service might look like. In the 9th grade I designed a way to transport a biosand filtration system to communities affected by natural disasters using a standard shipping container. That was when I realized I had come across something that I not only loved to do but could do to serve others. Since then, I have presented my design to organizations like Rotary to raise money to build a working prototype and have written a 4,000-word research paper on possible improvements to the system."

"God has created me with a passion for taking care of livestock and a love of science.  From a young age, I have been responsible for taking care of the family livestock and love attending their needs. I am eager to learn how best to heal their ailments and find joy in seeing them return to health. This has led me to seek a pre-medicine/veterinary degree with hope to use my career to serve others in the local community and through short-term missions."

Sean Baker
"Even before I knew what I wanted to do as a career, I knew it had to involve some sort of service; it would have to be a career where my job would be to help others. This is part of the reason I was drawn to seminary, along with other people from my home church, college professors, and friends who all encouraged me to be a pastor. That’s the joy of being a pastor! Pastors not only help people physically, but also spiritually. Their job is to point others to the Ultimate Helper, Jesus, the Savior of the Universe! There is no greater joy than telling others about Him. It doesn’t get much better than this!"

Nathan Samayo
"I could have ended my educational journey with my bachelor's degree, but there is something larger I am called into: to think of theology and its presence in the world critically. I am passionate to learn more about the intersection of these human experiences and Christianity, which will equip me to be a better minister and teacher. Therefore, I feel called into pastoral work within urban communities, especially in the community I grew up in since I am aware of its needs. I also plan to pursue my PhD to become a theology professor teaching homiletics and pastoral care."

Nathan Buegler
"I care deeply about issues of land restoration and protection, particularly in more heavily developed, urbanized areas with lower average incomes. Projects to restore natural watersheds and habitats in the midst of developed areas are so important because not only are they revitalizing areas for wildlife in the midst of areas affected by humans, but they are also enabling people to be exposed to wildlife and natural processes. If we want people to care about environmental justice, they need to be exposed to environments around them, so they can build a familiarity and understanding with nature and the ways in which it affects them, and how they can impact it in ways they were not aware of."
