Hawai‘i Promise Scholarship for University of Hawai‘i Community College Students

The Hawai‘i Promise Scholarship Program is a need-based scholarship program designed to make college affordable to all qualified Hawai‘i students. The program provides financial assistance to help meet the direct educational costs of University of Hawai‘i (UH) Community College students who are enrolled at least half time in an eligible academic program. The “last dollar” scholarship is based on FAFSA-determined criteria and is applied after all other grants and scholarships have been awarded. It helps fill the financial gap for the direct educational costs of qualified students. Students may be eligible up to the amount of the total cost of UH direct costs including tuition, fees, books, supplies and a standard transportation allowance.
