Figuring out the cost of college can be stressful for many families. At Rollins, we’re committed to making college more accessible and more affordable for all of our students, which is why we offer more than $80 million in combined aid each year. Need-based grants can significantly offset the cost of a Rollins education, and unlike loans they don’t need to be repaid. Explore some of the federal, state, and Rollins grants that our students tap into every year.
