The scholarships are awarded to encourage high school students in the State of Hawaii to pursue higher education in Business at any accredited four-year college or university. Resident students already enrolled in college are also considered.
Four year scholarships are awarded to students just entering college in increments of $4,000 annually.
Assuming eligibility is maintained, a total of $16,000 will be awarded over four years. Students already enrolled in college will receive awards varying in amount and duration depending on individual circumstances.
These awards will cover only the remainder of the student’s originally approved undergraduate program.
Approximately 45 students will be attending various colleges and universities on scholarships annually. We anticipate awarding approximately ten (10) new scholarships for the 2011-2012 school year.
To maintain scholarship eligibility, the recipient must demonstrate academic progress towards his or her Business degree by successfully completing a full-time course load each year aid is received.
The minimum grade point average (GPA) to qualify for continued aid is 3.0, except in special circumstances.
Where a college does not offer a formal Business major, a reasonable set of available business or economics courses must be approved by the committee*.
The scholarship will be discontinued if less than a full-time course load is taken, if a sufficient number of Business or Economics courses is not carried, if the student changes his or her major or course of study, or if the student no longer attends a four-year accredited college or university.
