OHA offers $500,000 in scholarships

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is launching two scholarship programs making a half-million dollars available to post-secondary students.

The OHA Higher Education Scholarship, administered by the Hawai‘i Community Foundation, requires students be of Native Hawaiian ancestry, be enrolled full- or part-time in an accredited two- or four-year college, and have a 2.0 or higher grade point average for undergraduate students and 3.0 or higher for graduate students.

The OHA Native Hawaiian Science and Engineering Mentorship Program Scholarship is administered through the University of Hawai‘i for Native Hawaiian students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). This funding provides scholarships and wrap-around services for students at any University of Hawai‘i campus.

“The scholarship money that we award represents our commitment to helping strengthen the future path of Native Hawaiian students,” said OHA Chairperson Robert K. Lindsey Jr. “It is also our contribution to their hope for a life where they can support a family and develop abilities they need for higher-skilled jobs.”

“Education is a great way for our Native Hawaiian students to uplift themselves and pursue higher-paying careers,” said Kamana‘opono Crabbe, Ka Pouhana, CEO of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, who was the first person in his family to get a doctorate degree. “I was able to get where I am today thanks to my education and am able to use that background to bring about positive change for our community.”
