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.
