HONOLULU - Recent high school graduates from Maui can soon apply for a new annual scholarship to attend Kapiolani Community College in Honolulu.
The college's Maui Island Culinary Arts Scholarship will support a student who wishes to pursue a degree or certificate in the school's Culinary Arts program.
This new fund can be used to cover all costs associated with attendance, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, meals, housing, and one round-trip interisland airfare. It will provide aid to the student for two consecutive years toward successful completion of an associate's degree or certificate.
Students who attended Baldwin High School will be given first preference to receive this scholarship, followed by students from any other Maui island high school.
The Kapiolani Community College Maui Island Culinary Arts Scholarship was established with a $25,000 anonymous gift. The donors believe that Maui students who attend college on a Neighbor Island will benefit from a broader educational experience and learn by being immersed in a different environment.
For more information on the scholarship program, contact Malia Peters, director of scholarship development, at (808) 956-6311 or Malia.Peters@uhf.hawaii.edu.
The University of Hawai'i Foundation, a nonprofit organization, raises private funds to support the University of Hawaii system.
