Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Scholarships

Many organizations and colleges, both private and public, have funding available to groups that have been traditionally under served in higher education.

Specifically, scholarships for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders are available to students who meet certain criteria. Minority students with a Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islands ancestry can benefit from researching scholarships focused on their ethnic group.

Examples of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander scholarships

Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander scholarships can ultimately assist with college costs that could range from books to on-campus housing to tuition. Remember these scholarships for minority students can be an effective way to help pay for college. Be sure to start your search early and read up on all of the requirements and deadlines. Some examples include:

  • The Office of Hawaiian Affairs offers assistance through its Higher Education Scholarship Programs to Native Hawaiian students.
  • The Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (AAPI) provides scholarships to underserved students with a special focus on those with demonstrated financial need.
