Kahua Hoʻomau Ola
Kahua Hoʻomau Ola provides an opportunity for Native Hawaiian adults, who never attended college to attend Leeward CC, and give college a try. Our goal is to reduce barriers to college for students, and we understand that finances are sometimes a major obstacle. With that being said, if a student is accepted into our scholarship program, we will pay for tuition, books, and fees for his/her first year at Leeward Community College.
Priority consideration is given to applicants who have no previous college experience or intend to enroll in college; who are of Hawaiian ancestry; who demonstrate in the application that there are financial and other barriers to enrolling in college; and who demonstrate in the application that they would not be able to attend college without support of the program.
