Scholarship Season Is Here!
Scholarship season has begun and it's time to prepare. The Liko A'e Native Hawaiian Leadership Program scholarship application for the 2015 -16 academic year will open on March 4, 2015. Our Apply Now page will be updated in January 2015.
In the meantime, the Native Hawaiian Scholarship ‘Aha's are a great place to start. The 'Aha's provide an abundance of information about sources of financial aid available for Native Hawaiian college students. Visit this link http://hawaii.edu/finaid/workshops.html to learn more about these presentations. A schedule of upcoming 'Aha sessions is posted below.
In addition, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs website also has great information about financial resources for Native Hawaiians, visit http://www.oha.org/scholarships for more details.

- Begin compiling transcripts, birth certificates, or any other documentation
