New law expands Hawaiʻi Promise scholarships for UH Community College students
Gov. Ige: Hawaiʻi Promise is a program to fill
the gap between what a family can afford and the actual cost of attending
community college here in Hawaiʻi. ʻAukai Rieman: The Hawaiʻi Promise program helped me out. The last two semesters I’ve received it, books, and I live in Nānākuli so it helped with travel. That was a big thing for me. Yeah, thank you. Kelley Caitano: The scholarship itself helped me not focus on the payments that I had to make on school but actually helped me focus on school itself. So it actually took a big load off of my shoulders. John Morton: We’ll be able to reach out and, we estimate, cover another five hundred students with Hawaiʻi Promise, and probably even more
students using our other financial aid, but we can get out there now and say
this promise is for you please come.
