Scholarships are generally based on academic merit and may be awarded by Rollins College, outside agencies, or state and federal governments. Scholarships are available from local businesses, clubs, organizations, and employers. A good source for these scholarships is www.fastweb.com. In some cases there may be a need component which requires completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order for eligibility to be determined. Please refer to the specific programs as listed below for the specific application processes and published deadlines.
The Hamilton Holt School Scholarship for Undergraduate 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. Most awards are based on a combination of past academic achievement, leadership, and service potential, plus demonstrated financial need.

Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program
Bright Futures awards offered by the state of Florida include the Florida Academic Scholarship and the Florida Medallion Scholarship. Bright Futures eligibility is coordinated through your high school guidance office and the final award is based on the actual number of enrolled credits.
If you receive the Florida Academic Scholars Award, your Bright Futures award will be based on $101 per credit hour. If you receive the Florida Medallion Scholars Award, your Bright Futures award will be based on $76 per credit hour.
For awarding purposes, we will estimate your enrollment at 12 credit hours per semester until the end of the add/drop period each semester. At that point, we will adjust your Bright Futures award based on your actual enrollment. If you are enrolled in more than 12 credit hours at the end of the add/drop period, your Bright Futures award will be increased. Conversely, if you are enrolled in less than 12 credit hours at the end of the add/drop period, your Bright Futures award will be reduced.
In addition, we are required to return any Bright Futures awards for credits dropped or not successfully completed. At the end of the add/drop period, your Bright Futures award will be set and any changes from that point on will result in either a reduction of your award (if you drop credits) or an increase (if you add credits). This will impact your student account and any balance created, will be due immediately.
Calculation: ________________ X $_____________ = $__________________
Hours Enrolled $101 or $76 Semester Award
Note: The maximum amount of Bright Futures you may receive each year is based on 45 hours of enrollment (fall plus spring, total credit hours completed). The Bright Futures Scholarship program is not available for use during the summer semester.
