The Associated Colleges of Illinois announced its first round of scholarship winners for the 2003-04 academic year, with seven Trinity students making the list. They will receive a combined total of $13,000 in financial aid.

"We had another successful year with scholarships from the ACI," said Scott Plaisier, assistant director of financial aid. "More Trinity students applied this year than ever before, and due to the quality applications that our students submit, the College has seen an increase in the number of recipients."

The ACI strives to make more education opportunities available for first-generation, minority, and low-income college students throughout Illinois. The generous donations of individuals, families, corporations, and charitable organizations help deserving students at the 24 ACI institutions complete their degrees.

Trinity's latest recipients, all of whom are sophomores, and their award sponsors are: Alissa Barr (Grover Hermann Foundation), Sunnyside, Washington; Andrea Christensen (A. Montgomery Ward), Sully, Iowa; Kendra Cumberland (Ward), Gasport, New York; Glory Miranda (Michele and Peter Willmott), Arlington Heights, Illinois; Jeremy Oosterhouse (Grover Hermann Foundation), Holland, Michigan; Daniel Roberts (Michele and Peter Willmott), Liberia; and Angela Russell (Michele and Peter Willmott), Hazel Crest, Illinois.
