Trine grant supports families of health care workers, first responders

In honor of National Doctor’s Day, March 30, Trine University is standing by and showing support for America’s health care workers and first responders by offering their dependents a one-time $1,000 We Stand Together Grant.

“Trine University has a long history of providing first responders and professionals who serve and protect our communities, initially through our criminal justice programs and more recently through our health sciences programs in Fort Wayne,” said Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine University president. “The current COVID-19 health crisis has demonstrated how greatly our society depends on these individuals, and we hope this grant honors the personal sacrifices they make to keep us safe and healthy.”   

The nonrenewable award may be applied toward tuition only for the academic year 2020-21. Any new or currently enrolled main campus, undergraduate student for the 2020-21 academic year is eligible.
