The Secular Society Scholars

The Secular Society Scholars

The Secular Scholars (TSS) program provides a full-tuition, four-year award to a select group of Hollins students through the graduating class of 2023. It also offers them a one-time award of $2,500 to be used for research initiatives, study abroad programs, or internships during their time at Hollins. 

The financial support of TSS fosters ingenuity and a passion for the breadth that a liberal arts education can provide. It also reflects each scholar’s motivation and aptitude for creative academic work and enthusiasm for activities beyond the classroom.

TSS prepares students for lifelong contributions to the University, state, nation, and world.


The Secular Society Hollins Visitor Program brings two distinguished women from various walks of life and professions to campus each academic year for two distinct purposes. The program strives to enhance the knowledge and skills of Hollins students and faculty by exposing them to expertise beyond what is found on campus, and introduce accomplished women to the benefits and enrichment that women’s education and the Hollins experience in particular bestow.
