Hawaii Campus Scholarships

General Scholarship Information:

All scholarships are made possible exclusively through donations made to the Hawaii Campus.  They are intended to provide relief for students in need of additional financial assistance, and priority is assigned to those who are not eligible for as many funding sources as other students.

  • Scholarship awards are competitive and based on funds availability.
  • Scholarships are only for use in the term for which they are awarded.
  • Scholarships will not be renewed automatically.
  • Scholarships have no cash value (cash refunds will not be given for them).
  • Failing, dropping, or withdrawing from a class covered by a scholarship may result in the student’s repayment of the scholarship award.
  • Eligible applicants may apply for more than one scholarship, but the committee will consider all funding sources when awarding scholarships.

The Student Spotlight Award, co-sponsored by the Veterans United Foundation, is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their academic achievement to the military and civilian educational community by explaining how credentials and higher education have led to sustainable and successful outcomes in their careers and lives.
