Applicants for a Lincoln Award/Illinois Scholarship must be residents of Illinois when they apply to Trinity. A student qualifies as a resident of Illinois if he or she lives in Illinois, even if attending a boarding school out of state. The reverse is not true. A student residing outside of Illinois is not eligible, even if attending high school in Illinois.

All Lincoln Award recipients will be notified by April 1.

To apply for a Lincoln Award, please provide all of the following information:











  • As part of this application for a Lincoln Award, you hereby authorize Trinity College to share and discuss with us the contents of your application file for admission to the College. All such information will be kept confidential and not used for any purpose beyond evaluating your candidacy for a Lincoln Award.
