Cirne National Scholarship 2018-2019 recipient announced

Trinity College School is thrilled to announce that a full-tuition boarding scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year has been awarded to Canadian student, Sydney Mueller.

Sydney is this year’s recipient of the Cirne National Scholarships. These scholarships are merit-based and include full tuition for the duration of the recipients’ studies in the boarding school program at Trinity College School.

Sydney is an articulate, keen and curious student. She is an avid reader who is always eager to learn. Hailing from Oshawa, Ontario, Sydney has demonstrated leadership skills and comes to TCS with experience as the captain of a competitive volleyball team. She will join TCS as a Grade 9 boarding student in September 2018.

The funds for the Cirne National Scholarships were provided by Trinity College School alumnus, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Lewis Cirne ’89. Raised in Port Hope, Mr. Cirne attended TCS from 1984-1989 and now resides in the United States. During his time at TCS, Mr. Cirne benefitted from the School’s bursary program and went on to excel in academics, music, athletics and student leadership. Having earned an A.B. in Computer Science from Dartmouth College, today, he is founder and CEO of New Relic, a publicly-traded technology company.

To date, this gift represents the most generous donation in the history of Trinity College School, and is one of the largest gifts ever made to a Canadian independent school. The Cirne National Scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving Canadian student(s).
