Financial Aid Opportunities

The Hamilton Holt School offers financial assistance to students in the form of scholarships, Federal Pell Grants, Direct Loans, the Florida Resident Access Grant, the Florida Student Assistance Grant and other loans and grants.

Florida Resident Access Grant 

The Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG) awards up to $2,500 per year to undergraduates who have been Florida residents for 12 consecutive months, regardless of financial need. You must be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours per term) and you must complete your coursework to remain eligible. Florida residents should complete and return the Florida Residency Affidavit in their first semester at Rollins.

Hamilton Holt Scholarships 

Tuition awards are available to new or current undergraduate students who have at least a 3.0 grade point average. Most of the awards are based on academic achievement, academic promise, and financial circumstances.

These awards are for Associate of Arts (AA) graduates from Valencia Community College, Seminole Community Colleges and Daytona State College with demonstrated academic achievement and leadership and financial need. The application guidelines are the same as for Hamilton Holt Scholarships. A separate application is not required. 

International Travel Grants
As part of the institutional mission of Rollins College, the Hamilton Holt School is committed to the education of students for global citizenship (Rollins College Mission Statement).
