Hawai'i Promise Program

smiling graduate

In the 2017 Hawai'i State legislative session, State leaders established the Hawai'i Promise, a scholarship program to provide free in-state tuition for qualified University of Hawai'i Community College students with financial needs.

The Hawai'i Promise Program will cover financial needs not met by other forms of financial aid such as federal grants and benefits from scholarships from UH, employers and other private sources. The program will cover tuition, fees, books, supplies and transportation.

Eligible students will have to qualify for Hawai'i resident tuition and be enrolled in a degree program at a UH community college for at least six credits per semester. Students will also need to submit the FAFSA application to determine their unmet need and maintain standards of academic progress as defined by the Federal Title IV programs.
