HONOLULU – Students entering grades 9 through 12 in Fall 2014 who are not currently enrolled full-time at one of Kamehameha Schools’ three campuses, and who reside on the islands of O‘ahu, Kaua‘i, Maui or Hawai‘i are now eligible to apply for Kamehameha Scholars.
Kamehameha Scholars is a year-round supplementary educational enrichment program with a focus on college and career guidance. The mission of the Kamehameha Scholars program is to support Native Hawaiian students in achieving a higher education degree, entering the career of their choosing and cultivating their ability to be servant leaders.
Students who complete the program will earn a college scholarship.
