Private/Outside Scholarships

Private/outside scholarships are available from businesses, clubs, organizations and employers. Many Rollins students receive outside scholarships in addition to other types of federal, state, and Rollins financial aid. Students generally seek these scholarships on their own through a variety of avenues.

There are many ways to find outside scholarships. For more information on how to start your search, click the links below.

Check back often as scholarships are added periodically from organizations who contact Rollins directly. We will also conduct an internal search and notify students who appear to meet the minimum requirements for these scholarships. For specific questions on these scholarships, please contact the organization listed on the application or website.
