When it comes to academic excellence, leadership skills, and visible Christian faith, Alex Gesch (Cedar Grove, Wisconsin) and Sarah Engbers (Elmhurst, Illinois) fulfill all the requirements for the Founders Scholarship at Trinity.

The two high school seniors were chosen from among 37 applicants for the prestigious award, which provides a renewable full-tuition scholarship for two incoming freshmen. 

"The task of determining this year's recipients was not easy," said Denise Coleman, Trinity's director of financial aid. "All of the applicants showed tremendous academic, social, and spiritual credentials. The competition for the scholarship points to the high quality of students who are choosing to pursue their higher education at Trinity. Both Sarah and Alex have the qualifications to have been accepted by any other prestigious institution in the United States, so we're pleased that they will be on our campus."

Engbers, who will graduate from Timothy Christian High School, plans to major in special education while Gesch, a student at Sheboygan County Christian High School, is eyeing business administration. They must maintain a minimum 3.75 grade-point average at the end of each academic year in order to renew their awards.

Applicants for the Founders Scholarship must be accepted as first-time freshmen at Trinity; rank in the top five percent of their graduating class or achieve a 3.8 grade-point average; score a minimum of 30 on the ACT or 1320 on the SAT; exhibit leadership in their church, school, or community; and show evidence of Christian faith.
