TRAC Sharing Inspiration Scholarship

We are thrilled to announce the creation of the TRAC Sharing Inspiration Scholarship which will make it possible for a student with history as a refugee to attend Trinity Western University

What: The Sharing Inspiration Scholarship will fully fund the recipient at TWU until completion of their program, or up to five years, renewing the award on a year-to-year basis beginning September 2019.

Who: 

Recipients will: 

  • have a refugee history
  • be eligible for admission to Trinity Western University
  • be committed to making the most of their university experience! 

We encourage all interested individuals that meet these criteria to apply!

How: 

  1. Download the application: TRAC Sharing Inspiration Scholarship Application
  2. Submit the completed application* and letters of reference to TRACScholarship@twu.ca

*Only completed applications will be considered.

When: 

  1. Applications will begin being reviewed in February 2019.
  2. Finalists will be notified by May 2019.
  3. The recipient will be selected by July 2019.

Why: 

We believe in the transformational power of the TWU community and want to share that with a deserving refugee student. It is estimated that a mere 1% of refugees will receive a post-secondary education. Through post-secondary education, the scholarship recipient will gain training and experience in their desired field, creating new sustainable opportunities as they move forward in our community and beyond. Our hope is that through this scholarship, a refugee settled in Canada will develop a sustainable career for themselves, make connections and networks in their new community, grow in character alongside us as fellow students at Trinity Western, and have the means to make a difference in their home countries in the future. This project is about creating a sustainable future despite transition and resettlement.

Since August 2017, TRAC has fundraised for the Sharing Inspiration scholarship through various means such as ongoing merchandise sales, a tax-deductible online giving platform through TWU, and numerous events.

From February 2, 2017-July 31, 2018 TRAC has raised $75,375.43 towards its projects, mobilized 106 volunteers, facilitated 17 awareness events, and sold 835 pieces of merchandise.
