Club offers scholarships

Kihei Canoe Club is offering at least three $1,000 scholarships to support youth paddlers.

Applicants need to have graduated from high school on Maui; to have paddled with Kihei Canoe Club during high school; be a current Kihei Canoe Club member; be 21 years old or younger when they apply; and to have not received more than two previous Kihei Canoe Club scholarships.

Recipients are expected to use this award to help fund post-high school education. Applicants must provide documentation of acceptance at an institution of higher learning (community college, four-year college, university or trade/vocational school) with their application.

Each student selected will be required to perform service to Kihei Canoe Club prior to the disbursement of the award.

Interested students may go to to find the application under “Scholarships.”

The application must be completed and postmarked by May 1 to be considered for funding for the 2012-13 school year. For more information, contact Renee Riley at
