Applications are currently being accepted for the University of Hawaii at Hilo Alumni and Friends Association scholarship. The $1,500 scholarship is intended for those pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree program at UH-Hilo. The application deadline is March 1.
Scholarship awardees will receive $1,500 to be applied toward tuition at UH-Hilo; the number of awards will be determined by the selection committee based on the availability of funds.
