Ke Ala ʻIke

The Ke Ala ʻIke Scholars Excellence Program was launched in 2009 as a Hawaiian culture-based “Honors Program” designed to provide an incentive for Leeward students who commit to cultural growth and academic achievement on the way toward earning any Associate degree or certificate.


Scholars engage in one-year program with requirements to earn a place in the Ke Ala ʻIke Scholars graduating class and are granted the privilege of wearing a kīhei (mantle of accomplishment) at Leeward Community

College’s Commencement Exercises.
