Just like the beautiful flowers and scenic beaches that cover the islands of Hawaii, plentiful also are the scholarship award dollars available to students and residents of the Aloha State. Hawaii is full of culture and breathtaking landscapes, including Polynesian traditions, Hawaiian volcanoes, Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial, and more. The charm of the islands also attracts students to universities, including University of Hawaii at Manoa, Hawaii Pacific University (HPU), and University of Hawaii at Hilo (UHH or UH Hilo). If you’re a student looking to attend a school in your home state of Hawaii, you could say “aloha” to some free college dollars.

The Gromet Foundation Scholarship

Whether a student is financially disadvantaged depends upon a number of factors which will be determined by the Gromet Foundation in its sole discretion. We look at the parents’ tax returns, type of jobs they have and number of dependents. We also look for indications of hardship which may be mentioned by school counsels in their recommendations. Generally speaking, being financially disadvantaged to us means the family, as a unit, is earning less than 150% of the poverty level for Hawaii. You can determine the poverty level based on family size by referring to www.atdn.org/access/poverty.html. For example, if the poverty line for a family of 4 is $40,000/yr. we will look for a family income which does not exceed $60,000/yr.
