Scholarship Application Form

The Scholarship Fund

The Hollyhock Scholarship Fund exists to provide support to individuals who require assistance to participate in a Hollyhock program. All applicants must first register for their chosen program. All applications are reviewed and considered. Priority is given to those who demonstrate financial need, diversity, have not received a Hollyhock scholarship within the past two years, and articulate how they will bring what they learn in their Hollyhock educational program back to their homes, workplaces and communities.

What is a Hollyhock Scholarship?

We grant partial tuition scholarships, generally up to one-half of the program tuition fee.  

Scholarship recipients are responsible for paying the balance of tuition, as well as the full cost of travel, accommodation and meals, day-use fees (for offsite guests), material fees (applicable for some programs), and taxes/ fees associated with attending a Hollyhock program.

*Please Note: Hollyhock scholarship grants are considered taxable income.

What Does Hollyhock Ask of Scholarship Recipients?

We may ask for your help to spread the word about the program you're attending, and post-program, we'll invite you to share a quotation or testimonial about your time at Hollyhock.
