Regents and Presidential Scholarships

The UH Board of Regents established the Regents and Presidential Scholarships to support entering students at The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, with a record of outstanding academic achievement.

Regents Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for four years of undergraduate study, and Presidential Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for two years of undergraduate study. All scholars receive $4,000 a year and a one-time travel grant of $2,000.

Regents Scholarships are awarded to 16 outstanding freshmen who receive an SAT combined score of at least 1950 on all three sections of the test or ACT combined score of at least 29, maintain at least a 3.5 GPA in academic subjects in high school, and whose extracurricular achievements are shown to be remarkable.

Presidential Scholarships are awarded to 7 college juniors who have a minimum cumulativbe GPA of 3.7 for all college level work, a record of sustained progress in academic courses, and evidence of superior academic achievement or creative endeavor.

Beginning in Academic year 2014-2015, our Presidential Scholarships are being refocused across the UH System to support the transfer of UH community college students who are transferring to UH baccalaureate campuses as juniors. During this transitional year, we will allow current Mānoa Juniors to apply for the Presidential Scholarship, with preference being awarded to those who fulfill the refocused goal of the Presidential Scholarships.
