The Ellis Award, sponsored by the Trinity Parents Organization and funded by the Trinity Auction, can help fund your travel dreams.

The Ellis Award is applied to any international, faculty-sponsored trip in the 2022-23 school year. All upper school students are invited to apply. Funds are raised by the biennial Trinity Auction. There is no foreign language requirement, and seniors may apply for this award to be used for spring break trips only.

Applications will be available beginning on or around Wednesday, August 23. Applications will then be due by September 29 to Ms. Rizzo in the Upper School office, located in Stuart Hall. More information can be found by viewing the Ellis Award Procedures

"My favourite thing about the Ellis Award is that it is intentionally given to people who, for whatever their personal reasons are, don’t have the opportunity to travel very much or at all. I personally chose to go to Iceland after receiving this award, and this is something that I simply would not be able to do in the foreseeable future without receiving the award. The trips that Trinity does are first and foremost great because students get to see parts of the world that they otherwise would never get to visit. Nevertheless, the more exciting part about Trinity’s trips for me was having the opportunity to be far away from my family and get some independence, while not having to worry about any responsibilities (besides keeping track of my passport). The Ellis award’s role in all of this was giving me such an experience which I couldn’t have had otherwise, and I can’t say how grateful I am about it."   ~ Seth Brunner, Spring 2022 Ellis Award Recipient

Past Trips



In March of 2018, Mr. Milsten, Mrs. Walker, and Mr. McGimsey led 28 students on a historical and cultural tour of Japan. Beginning in the very modern and busy Tokyo, where they spent an afternoon with a Sumo wrestler, they filled their afternoons with exploration, and their evenings with delicious Japanese fare. The students traveled by speed train to Kyoto, finding it filled with Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, imperial palaces, and mystic gardens.

Paris & Loire Valley

In June of 2017, Mrs. Spallone led students on a historical and cultural tour of Paris, France.

Southeast Asia

Students captured the sights of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam on this traveling photo workshop. In Cambodia, they shot bustling Phnom Penh, experienced the intricate temples of Angkor Wat, and stayed in a floating village homestay. In Vietnam, they toured the city of Hanoi and its surrounding villages. In Laos they explored the beautiful town of Luang Prabang, gave alms to monks, and rode elephants — all while practicing their skills with professional photographers.


The beauty of the Trinity Prep Istanbul trips lies in complete immersion. The students jump outside of tourist areas to eat with the Turks. Eating Iskender Kebob while sipping tea and listening to the call to prayer booming from hundreds of minarets surely reminds you that you aren't home. Turkish baths and eating baklava with every meal, all while enjoying the architecture of Byzantium and the Ottomans, are experiences that arrive once in a lifetime.
