Scholarship news from the admissions office

Trinity College School’s admissions office is pleased to announce the recipients of three full-tuition awards being offered for September 2022 entry, including the inaugural recipient of the Price Family Indigenous National Scholarship.

Ben Mussett from Brockville, Ontario is the recipient of the Cirne National Scholarship for the 2022-2023 school year. ⁠Ben enjoys public speaking, music, acting, hockey and soccer. Ben received the “Leader of Tomorrow” citizenship award for his positive contributions to his current school community. Ben strives to be a good role model for younger students and is always willing to help his peers. ⁠

⁠“For the past 10 years, I have been in a small school, in a small community,” Ben says. “I was in awe when I saw the resources TCS had when I toured this past summer. To have a hockey rink on campus, large fields, multiple gyms, school library, swimming pool, theatre and the opportunity to try new things I wouldn’t have ever imagined doing. I am excited to meet local and international students at TCS and learn about their cultures. I am also a big Harry Potter fan, and who wouldn’t want to dine in a place like Hogwarts.⁠”

Léa Jane Frenette from Montreal, Quebec is the recipient of the Caroline Chagnon ’07 Memorial Bursary for this coming school year. ⁠Léa plays flag football and she is also on the cheerleading team at her school. After school, she works as a lifeguard and swimming teacher. ⁠

⁠She says, “I am a very curious and outgoing person as I’m always willing to try something new. At TCS, I hope to make new friends from around the world and feel part of the community. I’m also a swimmer, a cross-country⁠ and alpine skier and I look forward to continuing to be active as a TCS Bear next year.”

Nalajoss Ellsworth from Iqaluit, Nunavut is the 2022-2023 recipient of the inaugural Price Family Indigenous National Scholarship. The Price Family National Scholarship is a new scholarship established by Frances and Tim Price ’59 to provide full tuition including ancillary fees for a boarding student of Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) heritage. The award aims to help make the TCS experience available to Indigenous students who demonstrate keenness, motivation, leadership potential and community values.

Nalajoss enjoys acting, drawing and painting. Prior to the pandemic, she was a member of the swim team. She also really enjoys running, even when it is -50° Celsius outside! ⁠

⁠Nalajoss says, “I hope being at TCS will strengthen my leadership skills so I can continue to make a difference for my future and the future of my community. Going to TCS would allow me more access to co-curricular activities that we don’t have here in Nunavut – like track and field or photography. I’m also excited at the opportunity to meet different people from all around the world and to make lifelong friends.”

We are excited to welcome Ben, Léa Jane and Nalajoss to TCS in the fall!
