Jubilee Scholarship launched

At the time of Trinity College’s 50th Anniversary, research was conducted into the history of our building, which showed that the family who built Stoke House had links with the transatlantic slave trade. In response to this history, and in recognition of the ongoing benefits we receive from the building, Trinity College is pleased to offer one annual scholarship to cover the full cost of tuition fees for a Black, British undergraduate or taught postgraduate student. This scholarship is named “Jubilee” as a celebration of our 50-year history and as one expression of our  commitment to ‘live like the kingdom is near’ through the release of debt and the return of property. It is also an expression of our priority to be a more diverse and inclusive institution.
