The University of Hawaii is working with community partners, including the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, GEAR UP Hawaii, Pacific Financial Aid Association and Native Hawaiian Education Association, to help Hawaii residents obtain the financial aid they need to attend any of the 10 UH campuses statewide.
A series of free workshops, including the Native Hawaiian Scholarship Aha Program and College Goal Sunday, have been scheduled statewide to provide information on federal financial aid forms and resources available, including specific financial aid resources for Native Hawaiian students.
“One of the repeated concerns of students surrounding the recent tuition increase was how could they afford to go to college,” said University of Hawaii Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Lui Hokoana.
