Welcome to the Scholarships and Fellowships Office!

The Scholarships and Fellowships Office supports students interested in scholarship and fellowship opportunities for domestic and international study, research, and professional development (see List of Awards). These awards are granted to students who demonstrate high achievement, leadership potential, and involvement. We are here to assist students in all stages of the application process, from freshmen looking for opportunities to build their candidacy to seniors seeking guidance on their application. Please read through our website for detailed information about these opportunities or feel free to contact us.

​The Scholarships & Fellowships Office endorses students for select competitions that require official nomination by the university. This office does not cover general undergraduate scholarship information or issues of financing graduate and professional education. Students interested in such information are advised to check with UHM’s Financial Aid Office or Office of Graduate Education websites.

We have been receiving a number of student transcripts for admissions or scholarship processes that our office does not handle. If you are an incoming student sending this as part of your acceptance to the University, check with the Undergraduate Admissions Office. If you are sending this in for consideration of a UHM specific scholarship, please find a list of scholarships on the Financial Aid Office’s website . If you send us transcripts without verifying if we should be the recipient, we have no means of letting you know if you have sent it to our office incorrectly.
