Scholarships and Awards
Ethel Evans Department of Religion Scholarship Awards
A limited number of Ethel Evans Department of Religion Scholarship awards are available to students majoring in religion. Awards are based on general academic achievement and on academic excellence within the department of religion.
Many religion students participate in undergraduate research through the department or through the Mellon Initiative in the Humanities. Religion students regularly receive funding for undergraduate research and for travel for research and conferences, and often publish research alongside faculty.

Office of Experiential Learning
Undergraduate research is central to Trinity University's values. The Office of Experiential Learning provides a place for students to gain information about internships, community service and service-learning opportunities, beyond the classroom course projects, and undergraduate research opportunities.
Religion Student Society
The Religion Student Society is an organization run by religion majors that meets for social and academic events. Join the Department of Religion Facebook group to find out about upcoming events and to discuss all things religion at Trinity University.
Today, cross-cultural understanding is as much a practical necessity as an educational standard. Study abroad is an embodiment of the liberal arts ideals and a sign of the initiative and breadth often looked for by employers.
Religion students have multiple study abroad opportunities to broaden their world perspectives about religion. Students can accompany Trinity faculty on research trips, including archaeological digs, in the Middle East, Africa, and Mesopotamia.
