Volunteers do not necessarily have the time;
They just have the heart. ~Elizabeth Andrew

About the Mānoa Service Award

The Mānoa Service Award is a scholarship program for UH Mānoa full time students. Students receive financial assistance for educational expenses, and in return, must complete volunteer hours on campus or in the community. For the 2021-2022 academic year, students receive $1,000 per semester and complete 50 hours of volunteer work each semester.

Current volunteer sites are with the Hawaii Department of Education, Blood Bank Hawaii, Japanese Cultural Center, Waikiki Aquarium, Queen Emma Summer Palace, UH Library system, Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii, Queen’s Medical Center, Honolulu Zoo, Hawaiian Humane Society, Family Programs Hawaii and many others!

Eligibility for the Mānoa Service Award is determined by the Financial Aid Office. If you are eligible for the award, you will receive an email from the Civic and Community Engagement program.
