Trine University is increasing merit scholarships by up to $2,000 per year for first-time
undergraduates entering the university in the fall of 2023.
“With many families struggling in the current climate of rising prices, we want to
make sure deserving students can benefit from the personal attention, practical experience
and outstanding job placement offered here at Trine University,” said Kim Bennett,
vice president for enrollment management at Trine.
“We’re known at Trine for doing things differently. While many universities are cutting
academic and extracurricular programs, we continue to grow. Since 2000, we’ve invested
more than $176 million in new facilities and technology. We know that college is one
of the biggest, most rewarding investments our students and families will make, and
we’re committed to walking with them every step of the way.”
With the additional funding, Trine students who qualify will now receive $12,000 to
$23,000 toward tuition each year from merit scholarships. Trine’s financial aid packages
already total almost $36,000 per student, on average, with 98% of the university’s
students receiving some form of financial aid.
The low debt load enjoyed by Trine students coupled with the university’s outstanding
job placement rate results in a stellar return on investment for students and their
families. The university recently announced that 99.5% of its Class of 2022 obtained
their desired job outcome within six months of graduation, lifting the placement average
for the university to more than 99% over the last decade.
