Hollister Co has launched an ongoing college scholarships program for outstanding students who have academically persevered while experiencing bullying and for those who have led anti-bullying efforts in their schools and communities.
Eligibility requirements include high school seniors with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Applicants may be U.S. or international students.
Scholarship funds will be sent to the university where the student enrolls and can be used for tuition, books, room and board, or other college-related expenses. The $2500 scholarships are renewable for up to three (3) years following the scholarship winner’s freshman year, depending on the student’s academic progress and continuing in full-time student status.
The scholarships are administered by the National Society of High School Scholars Foundation, based in Atlanta, GA. Recipients are selected by a Scholarship Selection Committee comprised of Hollister Co. Leaders, members of the NSHSS Foundation Board of Directors, and invited community leaders working on issues of anti-bullying.
