Welcome to UH Hilo's Financial Aid Office!

FA Students


Apply for Scholarships

The University of Hawaii Common Scholarship Application will be available beginning December 1, 2014. With this application, students are able to apply for both University of Hawaii System scholarships as well as UH Hilo specific scholarships. The deadline to apply is March 2, 2015.

College Goal 808

College Goal 808 is designed to help students and their families navigate the student financial aid process. The event offers free assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. The FAFSA is the application required by most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools in the nation.

Participants are encouraged to bring their 2014 Federal Tax Return, if it is complete. Students under the age of 24 will also need to bring their parent's return. If the 2014 tax returns have not yet been filed, you may bring the 2013 Federal Tax Return instead, along with any 2014 W-2 forms and other income and benefits information.

Events will be held in both East and West Hawaii and begin promptly at 1:00 pm. Registration is not necessary.
