Hollins Global Commitment
An educated woman can be a powerful agent for social and economic change. Yet, so many women are unable to realize their potential because they lack the resources to pursue enlightenment and inspiration.
More than ever, women on a global scale need institutions of higher learning that focus on opening doors of opportunity to them. At Hollins University, our mission is providing undergraduate liberal arts education for women from around the world. A key part of that calling is preparing students for fulfilling lives so that they can be a positive force in their communities.
To uphold our promise to women’s education worldwide, we are proud to offer the Hollins Global Commitment Scholarship. This award covers 100% of tuition for five deserving international students.
Requirements and how to apply
The #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship at Hollins University recognizes promising international students with a vision for enhancing intercultural understanding.
