Alumnae Referrals


Alumnae are by far Hollins' most persuasive and effective recruiters. And as an incentive, the Alumnae Association funds a scholarship to help alumnae refer prospective students to Hollins. If referral is received before she is admitted to Hollins, the student you refer will receive a $500 scholarship toward her first year's tuition. Scholarships will not be awarded to students who are already admitted.

Hollins Abroad

"One of the great things about study abroad at Hollins is that students from other colleges, both female and male, can take advantage of it. It meant the world to me and I am thrilled our son will be able to enjoy the same experience." – Jeannie Hall Rutherfoord ’74, whose son followed in her footsteps and attended Hollins’ Paris program.

Hollins Abroad ParisThrough Hollins Abroad programs in London and Paris, daughters (or sons, sisters, brothers, cousins, or friends' children) who are attending other colleges can study in England or France and get a flavor of the inimitable Hollins experience.

Hollins Abroad programs accept visitor students from other colleges and universities across the country. For more information, contact the International Programs Office at (800) 511-6612 or abroad@hollins.edu.
