Pacific Area Scholars Program
The Pacific Area Scholars (PAS) Program is the most coveted and prestigious scholarship at BYU–Hawaii. Being admitted to this program is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as only a few candidates are selected.
The program provides recipients with full tuition, room and board, and books for all four years for those who maintain eligibility. It also includes a travel stipend to help cover transportation to BYU–Hawaii and your return home upon graduation (one round trip total).
Scholars must maintain a 3.50 CGPA to remain in the PAS program.

During Your Enrollment at BYU–Hawaii
Scholars will be admitted to the PAS program for a year. Eligibility to the program will then be reviewed after each completed semester, once grades are posted and a new cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is available. Scholars may continue to receive aid to cover room and board and books.
If scholars do not meet eligibility for the program, they can apply for the IWORK program or become self-funded.
- The Pacific Area Scholars Award will cover no more than four years in residence.
- Scholars will be required to enroll in a minimum of 14 credits for fall and winter, and 9 credits for spring.
