Hana Lima Scholarship Program
2017-2018 Application is now available

August 3, 2017


This is a friendly reminder that the Hana Lima Scholarship Program’s 2017-2018 Application is now available.

The Hana Lima Scholarship provides financial assistance to students participating in a vocational or technical education program for occupations that can provide a “living wage.” This scholarship is available to students in vocational programs that lead to a specific segment of employment. Students pursuing a major in Liberal Arts are not eligible for this scholarship as the Hana Lima Scholarship supports students who have declared and are committed to a specific program of study.

The Hana Lima Scholarship is a competitive award with preference given to non-traditional students: Single parents, disabled (meets ADA definition), houseless, sole-income providers, previously incarcerated and wards of the court.

As an applicant, you must meet the following criteria:
• Be of Native Hawaiian ancestry
• Be a resident of the state of Hawai‘i
• Received a High School Diploma or equivalent
• Not currently receiving any Kamehameha Schools financial aid for post-secondary education
• Maintain a 2.0 or higher grade point average (GPA)
• Be enrolled at least half time in a vocational degree or certification program in one of the educational institutions in Hawaii listed on our website. *Online courses will be considered on a case by case basis.

The Hana Lima Scholarship award is to be used toward tuition and fees, books and other required tools or uniforms. Scholarship checks are mailed directly to the school or program.
