Regents and Presidential Scholarships

The UH Board of Regents established the Regents and Presidential Scholarships to support students with a record of outstanding academic achievement.

Regents Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for four years of undergraduate study, and Presidential Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for two years of undergraduate study. All scholars receive $4,000 a year and a one-time travel grant of $2,000.

Regents Scholarships are awarded to 20 outstanding freshmen who receive an SAT combined score of at least 1950 on all three sections of the test or ACT combined score of at least 29, maintain at least a 3.5 GPA in academic subjects in high school, and whose extracurricular achievements are shown to be remarkable.

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. For academic year 2014–2015, these scholarships are being refocused to support the transfer of UH System students, especially for UH community college students transferring to UH baccalaureate campuses.

Apply for a Scholarship

The Regents and Presidential Scholarships are administered by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at UH Hilo, UH Manoa and UH West O‘ahu in cooperation with the UH System Office of the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs.
