Hamilton Holt Scholarships for New Incoming Students

The Hamilton Holt School Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to qualified students who might otherwise be unable to pursue their education. The Holt School Scholarship Fund, established almost thirty years ago, has awarded over $5 million in scholarships to Holt students through the generous support of individual and corporate donors.


A completed admission application must be received by the priority filing deadline to qualify for Hamilton Holt Scholarships. Most awards are based on a combination of past academic achievement and demonstrated financial need. Eligibility is partly based on the information reported your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Additional financial information may be requested if you are not eligible to complete a FAFSA due to citizenship status. The scholarships listed below are awarded only at the time of admission.

  • Hamilton Holt High Achiever Award: A $1,200 annually renewing scholarship that is awarded to transfer students who have completed a minimum of 24 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or higher.
  • Valencia Partnership Award: Recognizes Valencia College students with a $1,000 annually renewing scholarship for students who have or will have completed their Associate's degree with a 3.0 GPA or higher within 12 months of beginning classes at Rollins.
  • Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) Award: In partnership with OCPS, accepted students who are currently employed as a para-professional at an OCPS Title I school will receive a $1,000 annual scholarship.
  • Community Engagement Award: Recognizes students who exemplify the Rollins mission through community engagement. This $1,000 annually renewing scholarship is given to students who have been an active member in community organizations that focuses on service for a minimum of twelve months. These organizations include the Boys & Girls Club, Hispanic Heritage Society, Elevate Orlando, Boy/Girl Scouts of America.

Students who enroll in only 12 credit hours per academic year will not complete all degree requirements within the three-year scholarship limit. Students are encouraged to create a course plan with their academic advisors that addresses their individual needs.

Scholarships are renewable for up to six semesters of enrollment of at least 16 credit hours (eight credit hours per semester, fall and spring) with a maintained overall GPA of 2.0 or higher. Recipients are also required to complete 4 community service hours with the Holt community each academic year. Please see the approved community service options for more details.
