The Pauahi Foundation administers scholarships that have been created by private donors and awards these scholarships supporting college level areas of study, as well as trade and vocational courses. Many awards may be determined based on merit, while some include specific criteria such as geographic location, field of study, financial need or grade point averages.
Scholarships are available to the general public, including graduates of Kamehameha Schools. Foundation scholarships are supplemental and may not cover the full cost of education. Students are also encouraged to apply for educational financial assistance from state, federal, and private funds and contribute from their own earnings. Foundation awards are subject to availability of funds.

The online materials identify the processes you must follow and deadline dates you must comply with in order to be considered for any scholarship. Your failure to follow process instructions and comply with all deadlines will result in you not being considered for any scholarship.
