Last week, first term student Eric Pierce was named Trinity School of Medicine's Chancellor’s Scholarship recipient for the September 2017 class.
For some context, the Chancellor's Scholarship is a merit based award open to select recipients of Trinity's Physician, Dean, and President awards. Candidates meeting the academic criteria are invited to write on a topic selected by the faculty. The winner's award ($2,000, $2,500, or $3,000 per term, depending on their initial scholarship), is increased to $5,000 per term. In total, this one scholarship covers nearly 40% of of Trinity's total tuition for the recipient.
We spoke with Eric and Dr. Skelton to discuss the selection process, the sense of responsibility that comes with winning, and what that means for Trinity students and faculty alike.

He reminisced about their passion upon arrival in a new country, to new people, and a new experience.
