Scholarship donors and student recipients came together to celebrate the gift of education at the annual University of Hawaiʻi Scholarship Celebration at Stan Sheriff Center in March. Students enjoyed having the opportunity to personally thank the generous people who have invested in their success, and donors were delighted to meet the people whose futures they are impacting.
UH Vice President of Advancement and UH Foundation CEO Tim Dolan said, “Scholarship assistance does so much in addition to helping meet critical financial needs. Scholarships say, ‘I want you to succeed and I believe in you.’ There is no greater gift.”
In 1976, the first permanently endowed scholarship was created at the UH Foundation to benefit students attending UH. Since then, providing access to higher education through private gifts has become a tradition. Today, the foundation manages more than 2,000 student aid accounts.
Last year, the UH Foundation distributed more than $11.6 million in student aid to 3,863 students statewide.Full Story - UH News
