The Pauahi Foundation’s policy is to give preference to applicants of Hawaiian ancestry to the extent permitted by law.
The Foundation utilizes the services of Kamehameha Schools Hoʻoulu Hawaiian Data Center (Data Center) to verify Hawaiian ancestry of those applicants who wish to be considered under the Foundation’s preference policy.
This is a separate process and should not be confused with the scholarship application process.
Upon receipt of your completed scholarship application and if you have not previously registered with the Data Center, you will receive a Hawaiian Ancestry Registration (HAR) form which you should complete if you wish to be considered under the Foundation’s preference policy. This process may take up to ten weeks.
If you have already completed this process, no further action on your part is needed in regards to ancestry verification. You also do not need to send us your verification letter. We will verify ancestry through our established processes with the Data Center.
All questions regarding Hawaiian ancestry registration and verification should be directed to the Data Center.
