The Hamilton Holt School offers financial assistance to returning college 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 about $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. More than $3.2 million in tuition scholarships has been awarded since the Scholarship Program began in 1988. The application guidelines are now online.
EXCEL Transfer Scholarships
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.
