Holland College is the provincial community college for the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island (PEI). It is named after the British Army engineer and surveyor Captain Samuel Holland.


It was formed by the Government of Prince Edward Island, then led by Premier Alex Campbell, in 1969 as a result of an education reform policy undertaken as part of the Prince Edward Island Comprehensive Development Plan, which saw the closure of the province's two post-secondary institutions structured along religious lines: St. Dunstan's University and Prince of Wales College. It also led to the creation of the nondenominational University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) and Holland College.





Three Rivers


Holland College offers more than 60 one-year certificate and two-year diploma programs. [1]


The college offers almost $500,000 in scholarships and bursaries for eligible students. In 2010, the college joined Project Hero, a scholarship program cofounded by General (Ret'd) Rick Hillier for the families of fallen[ clarification needed ] Canadian Forces members. [2]
