Scholarships and Fellowships
Hollins has accepted a challenge from philanthropist and alumna Jane Parke Batten '58 of Norfolk to raise $5 million by December 2013 in order to receive a matching grant of the same amount. Successfully meeting the challenge will enhance the funding of scholarships for students who wish to attend Hollins and participate in the university's Batten Leadership Institute; scholarships for current Hollins students who want to earn a Certificate in Leadership Studies; and scholarships for other deserving students.

Without a doubt, Hollins is in better financial condition now than it was eight years ago at the start of the Campaign for Women Who Are Going Places.
Increasing the endowment was by far the most important priority in the campaign, comprising 62 percent of the campaign goal. The $60.6 million raised against the $78 million needed is substantial and will make significant contributions to Hollins through the years; however it also signals unfinished business, and so increasing the endowment will continue to be a priority.
Nearly $28 million in irrevocable deferred gifts and testamentary pledges help build a secure future for Hollins.
|Restricted endowment||$50 million|
|Unrestricted endowment||$10 million|
