Thirteen Hawai‘i high school graduates are recipients of the Chancellor’s Scholarship from the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. The incoming freshman come from high schools located on the islands of Hawai‘i, Kaua‘i, Maui and O‘ahu.
The award, valued in excess of $26,500, covers four years of tuition for students graduating from a Hawai‘i high school who earned either a grade point average of at least 3.5, a combined 1800 SAT (reading, writing, math) or a composite score of 27 on the ACT while demonstrating leadership and/or community service.
“We’re very pleased these outstanding students from around the state will be attending UH Hilo,” says Chancellor Donald Straney.
All Chancellor’s Scholars are required to enroll as full-time students and earn a minimum of 24 credits each academic year. They must also maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and participate in leadership and community service activities with other Chancellor’s Scholars.
