The Scholarship Committee identifies finalists for the John D. Hollingsworth Scholarships and extends invitations for an interview.  The interviews are held in late March.  Candidates will be notified by mail if they are selected to compete. Students selected as winners of these awards will receive this scholarship in lieu of any Bell Tower Scholarships previously awarded.

As committee members review your admission application, they look for South Carolina-area scholars who have demonstrated a passion for helping others and making an impact in their communities. Candidates have demonstrated strong leadership skills and hope to continue a high level of civic engagement while attending Furman. ​​​​
