Seventeen Hawai‘i high school graduates are recipients of Chancellor’s Scholarships from the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. The incoming freshman come from high schools located on Hawai‘i, Maui and O‘ahu. The prestigious award, estimated to be worth more than $22,000, is presented annually to outstanding graduates from Hawai‘i high schools.
