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.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, one merit-based, full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to a boarding student who is new to TCS.

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
  • OLSAT test over 70th percentile (Grades 9-12)

Requirements for Application

  • Submit to the regular application process of Trinity College School by January 18, 2019. 
  • Write a letter or essay stating why the applicant feels he/she is a good candidate and would be a worthy recipient of this scholarship (limit of 500 words) by January 18, 2019.
  • Based on the application and essay, a short list of 3-5 candidates will be selected for a second interview with the TCS scholarship committee. 
  • 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.

Expectations of the Recipients

  • Maintain a minimum 80% academic average
  • Be involved in all three terms of co-curricular activities
  • Engage in leadership opportunities throughout his/her career and act as a role model for peers
  • Embrace TCS values and live up to TCS standards

The scholarship recipient’s performance will be evaluated each year at the time of his/her second report card (February) and if all expectations are being met, the scholarship will be renewed for the following year.
