Hawai‘i Promise Scholarship

The Hawai‘i Promise Scholarship is a last dollar, need-based award toward the unmet direct cost need of qualified students enrolled at any community college campus of the University of Hawai‘i. Direct cost for the purposes of awarding Hawai‘i Promise Scholarships consists of tuition, fees, books and supplies, and transportation ($225/semester). Recipients must qualify for Hawai‘i resident tuition, complete the FAFSA and accept all federal and state grants, scholarships, and other funding sources that do not require repayment. Recipients must also maintain satisfactory academic progress. Award amounts are contingent upon funding and the individual student's FAFSA information.
