Overview & Timeline
The Foundation administers scholarships that have been created by private donors. The Foundation awards scholarships supporting college level areas of study, as well as trade and vocational courses. Many awards may be determined based on merit, while some are restricted for those students who demonstrate a financial need or for students applying from specific regions.
Scholarships are available to the general public, including students who are not graduates of Kamehameha Schools. However, it is the policy of Ke Ali‘i Pauahi Foundation to give preference to applicants of Hawaiian ancestry to the extent permitted by law.
Foundation scholarships are supplemental and may not cover the full cost of education. Students may also apply for educational financial assistance from state, federal and private funds and contribute from their own earnings. Awards are subject to availability of funds.
Before proceeding, please be sure to read all Ke Ali‘i Pauahi Foundation Scholarship Online materials.
