The Hollingsworth Scholars program is Florida Southern’s premier scholarship program and is available exclusively to students whose academic accomplishments demonstrate superior intellect, unwavering character, and robust ambition. Funded through the generosity of Bernie Little, Jr., ’90 and his wife, Mary Jane Hunt, the Hollingsworth Scholars Program was created to provide the most dedicated and talented students with the opportunity to study at one of the nation’s best private colleges, the freedom to do so as fully dedicated scholars, and the opportunity to explore his or her leadership potential through collaboration with our college president, Dr. Anne Kerr, who serves as advisor to the Hollingsworth Scholars Program. Recognizing some of the nation’s top students, these coveted awards cover the full cost of tuition and fees, room, meals, and books for four years, and provide a travel stipend to underwrite the cost of an international travel-study experience. Awarded to first-year students and renewable each year, these scholarships are valued at more than $170,000 over four years.
