The first permanently endowed scholarship was created at the UH Foundation in 1976. Since then, the tradition of providing opportunities through private gifts has grown to help more than 3,000 students each year.

Scholarships, awards, grants and fellowships offer students the opportunity to pursue their educational goals at Hawai‘i’s only public system of higher education. The impact of a scholarship has an effect felt far beyond the student helped.

When you provide a scholarship for a student, you do more than help them financially — you impart a lesson of generosity and concern for others that they incorporate into their own lives. By investing in a student, you improve their life, their family's, and our community.

Join us in investing in our students.

If you are interested in making a real difference in a student's life, please contact us.
