BYU–Hawaii offers scholarships to students who have demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence, as an investment in their education. Scholarship funds are provided through tithes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the contributions of generous donors. They are given to encourage continued commitment to spiritual and intellectual growth. Students should become familiar with the requirements for these scholarships in order to assure eligibility to receive these awards.
Similarly, off-campus organizations may offer scholarship opportunities.
Financial Aid & Scholarships encourages students to research and apply for as many of external scholarships as possible.
Searching for these opportunities can be worthwhile.
