The Presidential Scholarships are awarded to three exceptional students displaying aptitude in academics, leadership, and Christian commitment.
- 1st Place: 90% tuition scholarship
- 2nd Place: 75% tuition scholarship
- 3rd Place: 60% tuition scholarship
Winners receive the awarded percentage off of tuition for the eight semesters they attend Trinity Bible College as long as they meet the listed requirements. This is the largest and most prestigious scholarship Trinity Bible College offers. Therefore it cannot be stacked with other Trinity or institutional scholarships.
Are you a PackYourBags student? Up to one Presidential Scholarship can be awarded to a PackYourBags student. The scholarship cannot be applied to the PackYourBags program. If a PackYourBags student wins a Presidential Scholarship, it will be applied to their subsequent six semesters at Trinity Bible College.
