Scholarship Search Opportunities

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. Two good sources for these scholarships are www.fastweb.com and www.cappex.com/scholarships. Below are organizations who have contacted Rollins directly and we are these posting scholarship opportunities. 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.
