Financial Aid


“Thank you so much for your contribution to my education. College would not have been an option without you.”

- Rebecca Hobbs '12, Business and Psychology Major, Susan Reeve Class of 1975 Scholarship



Hollins is committed to making a top quality education affordable for undergraduate students, including women of all ages returning to college, and men and women who seek to expand their education through our graduate programs.


Endowed financial aid plays a critical role in recruiting and retaining college students and is essential to Hollins' future. Nationally, two-thirds of students who score a minimum of 1200 on the SAT come from families whose annual income is less than $100,000. In addition, the most able students, regardless of family income, expect merit scholarships in recognition of their accomplishments and abilities.


Hollins grants approximately $10 million annually in various forms of student financial assistance. As with most colleges, this support comes primarily from two sources:

  • income from endowed scholarships
  • and an allocation from the annual operating budget.
