ANGOLA, IN - Though the COVID-19 pandemic prevented Trine University from holding its annual Scholarship Gala in person, generous donors have made sure students will not suffer from its absence.
To date, the university has raised more than $1.3 million through the Trine University 2021 Gala Fund, set up to replace funds that normally would have been contributed at the elegant event. The amount includes a $300,000 match for Books and Beyond scholarships from Trine board chair alumnus Dr. Rick L. James and his wife, Dr. Vicki L. James, and The James Foundation.
Books and Beyond Scholarships, a key part of the effort, supports Trine students with unexpected expenses that may not be covered by traditional financial aid, including textbooks, technology or travel expenses.
The university plans to host the Scholarship Gala as an in-person event in 2022.
