The Fort Shafter Hui annually awards merit scholarships in two categories:
MERIT SCHOLARSHIP FOR TRADITIONAL STUDENTS
Those who are currently High School Seniors or College Students (Graduate or Undergraduate) who have never taken a break from school and are enrolled or have applied for enrollment in a qualifying college, university or vocational school.
MERIT SCHOLARSHIP FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION
Hui O’Wahine members or their spouses who have taken a break in their education and are now continuing full- or part-time in a qualifying college, university or vocational school.
Each category is judged separately; both scholarships apply the same criteria. All application information will be treated in a confidential manner. Applicants name and other identifying information will be removed from the application before being reviewed by the selection committee. Questions can be directed to the Hui O’Wahine Scholarship Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
