Thanks to generous donors, Hollins University is grateful to be able to provide travel awards to a number our students undertaking an abroad experience (during the semester, summer or January Term). These funds were gifted to Hollins University with the intention of assisting students that would not otherwise be able to study abroad. Therefore, students with demonstrated need will receive preference for travel awards, but academic merit will also be considered. Due to the donors’ intentions, it is rare that a student would receive funding for multiple abroad experiences.
In order to be eligible for consideration for these travel awards you must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 and agree to communicate with a representative of the fund's donors through the Hollins Development Office upon receipt of the award; meet with the fund's donors if requested by the Hollins Development Office; submit to the International Programs Office, no later than one month after returning to campus, a written description of how the funds were used and how they contributed to the study abroad experience.
Preference will be given to those applicants with financial need as establish be the Office of Scholarships and Financial Assistance, however all students who meet the aforementioned requirements should apply.
The scholarship committee may interview semi-finalists.
Final recipients will be notified no later than a month prior to the anticipated study abroad date.
