Hawaii Scholarships

Hawaii is known as the Aloha State. Aloha is a word that means both hello and goodbye, making it one of the hardest states in which to end a conversation. Also, it is our nations youngest state, entering the union in August of 1959.

There are over 20 schools in Hawaii's higher education system. These run the gamut from small trade schools to large universities offering undergraduate and graduate degrees. This sunny paradise can be the perfect spot to study marine biology, oriental medicine, agricultural science or a host of other academic pursuits.

Education can be expensive in Hawaii. This may have something to do with the fact that students seem to want to attend college in Hawaii more than they want to move to Oklahoma. Puzzling. Luckily there are plenty of scholarship opportunities available for all types of students. These include merit-based, achievement-based and need-based grants and scholarships.
