Our impact
Collectively, we have made great progress and growth, but what excites us the most is the enormous potential we have to do even more.

  • Brigham Young University - Hawaii

I am sincerely grateful to be a recipient of this scholarship. This has given me the drive and support that I needed to further my dreams, especially in a male-dominated field with little Hawaiian native representation. With this opportunity my financial burdens of pursuing higher education as a full-time student and part-time employee has been greatly eased. Even though I was struggling to make my academic dreams a reality, I will be able to persevere with the encouragement and inspiration that this scholarship gives me. I hope to live up to your expectations and will continue working hard.
