Cayman Scholarship

Introduced in 2015, in commemoration of Trinity College School’s 150th anniversary, the Cayman Scholarship, is to replace the tradition of the Hunter Scholarship awarded in the Cayman Islands since the 1980s. The recipients of the Cayman Scholarship (formerly known as Donald F. Hunter Scholarship) must exhibit academic excellence, leadership potential and the desire to become engaged in all aspects of the TCS community.

One student is currently attending on the Cayman Scholarship, therefore, this scholarship is not available for the 2020-2021 school year.

Criteria

  • New boarding student only
  • Resident of the Cayman Islands; please note this is for any student living in the Cayman Islands, not just Caymanian citizens

Requirements for Application - This scholarship is not available for the 2020-2021 school year.

  • Submit to the regular application process of Trinity College School.

  • This scholarship is given at the discretion of the TCS scholarship committee. The selection of a recipient is not based solely on academic achievement, but also focuses on a candidate’s perceived ability to contribute to the school community.
