Trinity Health Foundation is honored to provide support to our community through several avenues of funding. Trinity provides scholarship opportunities to healthcare professionals through local hospital systems and to nursing students through Carson-Newman and Lincoln Memorial Universities.
Trinity’s main focus of support revolves around its commitment to the nonprofit community through the Phase I and Phase II grant process.
Annually, Trinity honors two healthcare professionals who exhibit excellence in their medical field of interest. Each recipient receives a $2500 scholarship to use toward continuing education. Twelve area hospitals select and recommend exemplary recipients for this award. The chosen recipients and hospital administrators are honored at the annual Silver Lamp Awards Dinner.
Trinity awards Blake Scholarships to nursing students from Carson-Newman University and nursing and medical technology students from Lincoln Memorial University. Students are selected by each university, must be in the final two years of their program, and use the award toward completion of their degree. Each recipient receives a $5,000 scholarship and is honored at the annual Silver Lamp Awards Dinner.
To date, Trinity has granted over 300 projects and funded over $10 million. These projects include, but are not limited to, a soccer complex providing inner-city youth the opportunity to compete, telepsychiatry systems for outer county youth evaluations, dental clinics in rural locations, homes for veterans, long-term respite care for the homeless, and scores of other projects that remain in effect today. Trinity has had the privilege of supporting a broad range of nonprofit organizations serving East Tennessee.
