The Board of Regents established the Presidential Scholarships to support students with a record of outstanding academic achievement. A total of ten scholarships will be awarded each year. Applicants must be juniors in the upcoming fall semester.
Presidential Scholarships are awarded to 10 college juniors who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.7 for all college level work, a record of sustained progress in academic courses, and evidence of superior academic achievement or creative endeavor.
Presidential Scholars receive a full tuition scholarship and a stipend of $2,000 each semester, plus a one-time travel grant of up to $2,000. The scholarship is renewable for a total term of four consecutive semesters, providing that eligibility is maintained. Presidential Scholars may attend any baccalaureate campus of the University of Hawaii.
