- Edward Lapsley/Hoʻopaʻa Mau Scholarship
- University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
I would like to extend my deepest appreciation. I’ll be able to pursue my dreams of giving back to our community without having to worry about the burden of financial expenses. I plan on taking advantage of UH Mānoa's BA/MA program and I already earned college credits in order to obtain my master's in under four years while also minoring in Hawaiian language and being in the honors program. I plan on attending law school and practicing here in Hawai'i. This gift will always resound in every action I take toward my goals, and I cannot state how much it means to my ʻohana and me - mahalo nui.
