UH, OHA help for Native Hawaiians eyeing college


HONOLULU (AP) — The University of Hawaii and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs are offering free presentations on resources and financial aid available to Native Hawaiian students interested in attending college.

They’ll make 18 presentations on Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii islands over the next two months.

The presentations will include a brief workshop on filling out financial aid applications and strategies on earning scholarships.

The sessions are part of a statewide initiative to bring Native Hawaiian scholarship opportunities to underserved communities.

UH and OHA are working together with a federal program called GEAR UP Hawaii on the project.

The first sessions will be held in Waimea, Kona and Hilo and the Big Island during the last week of this month.
