Purchase Gala Tickets

In its history, the Trine University Scholarship Gala has raised more than $2 million, with all proceeds benefiting the student scholarship fund. In 2016, this event raised a record-breaking $742,000 and enabled Trine to continue its tradition of providing institutional scholarships or financial aid to 98 percent of our students. We hope you will join us in making this another record year.

Books and Beyond Scholarships

You can continue to impact students′ lives by supporting this scholarship program, which was created as a matching challenge of $35,000 five years ago. Today, the match challenge is $100,000. 

Contributions to the Books and Beyond Scholarship Program will assist deserving students who demonstrate financial need. Scholarships will go directly to students so that they can purchase needed books, computers, school and lab supplies, and meals. Funds will also help students pay modest account balances that will allow them to register for the next semester.

Please consider sponsoring at least one $500 scholarship, and remember your purchase will be matched dollar for dollar.
