Your first step is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA. The FAFSA provides access to over $150 billion in grants, loans and work-study funds from the federal government.

Don’t worry if you think you aren’t eligible to receive federal aid, you should still fill out the application to see what you qualify for.

Get started on your FAFSA now.

Hawai‘i Scholarships

The Hawaiʻi Promise Scholarship Program is a need-based scholarship program designed to make college affordable to all qualified Hawaiʻi students. The program provides financial assistance to help meet the direct educational costs of University of Hawaiʻi (UH) Community College students who are enrolled at least half time in an eligible academic program. The “last dollar” scholarship is based on FAFSA-determined criteria and is applied after all other grants and scholarships have been awarded. It helps fill the financial gap for the direct educational costs of qualified students. Students may be eligible up to the amount of the total cost of UH direct costs including tuition, fees, books, supplies and a standard transportation allowance.
