Scholarship Recipients

Scholars at Convention


At the core of our mission is the vision of our patron, Prince Kūhiō, for the upward mobility of the Hawaiian people through education.

With this in mind, we make a commitment to fund scholarship recipients for their two or four years of higher education, provided that transcripts are submitted on a timely basis and that the recipient re-applies for each succeeding year until graduating.
