Financial Assistance Available

We provide financial assistance to students who might otherwise be unable to pursue our non-credit courses. Awards are based on a combination of financial need and a brief essay.

Scholarship applications are due on the 15th of the month prior to the start of each four week class session. For example, if you wanted a February class, the scholarship deadline would be Jan. 15. Applicants will be notified before the start of classes.

Application Process:

Please submit this form along with a one page essay discussing the topic listed below.

Selection Process: 
Awards are competitive and based primarily on financial need. The Rollins STARS Senior Enrichment Program Advisory Council will make the final decisions. Award recipients will be notified in writing and by email by the end of the month before class starts.

Each individual course is $70. The scholarship covers $50 per course (you are only responsible for $20). You may apply for up to three scholarships a semester (fall or spring). In your application, please mention which class(es) you would like to use the scholarship(s).
