Native Hawaiian scholarship workshops available

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:30 a.m. HST, Nov 29, 2013

Workshops will be held statewide to provide Native Hawaiians with information about college scholarships and financial aid resources.

The University of Hawaii says the effort is part of a statewide initiative to bring Native Hawaiian scholarship opportunities to underserved communities. The university says it is partnering with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, GEAR UP Hawaii, Pacific Financial Aid Association and the Native Hawaiian Education Association.

The workshops are open to high school students, parents, teachers and anyone interested in learning about the criteria and eligibility requirements for financial aid resources available to Native Hawaiians.

The first workshop is scheduled for Tuesday at Kauai Community College.

A schedule is available at www.hawaii.edu/aha.

Phone number dude, The point she is trying to make is not that she should have a right, or a Hawaiian have the right, or black, green purple.....The point is, there should not be a segregation of people when dealing with what is right or not. Unfortunately you see only defferences amongst God's people instead of looking at each as a brother and sister. Let me see, didnt we just pass a bill regarding SSM, and wasnt there a law put into effect several years ag0 regarding the rights of the black man, the women.....See where Im going with this PHONE NUBMER DUDE?

Yes allie, It's the same divide and conquer politics by the liberal machine that keeps telling Polynesian-Hawaiians that they need "special" help, and are entitled to it. In actuality, the number white folks attending the U of H is less than Hawaiians because they are lumped in with Hispanics. Whites are the minority on campus. It is just a shame that more isn't done for them.

I am here cause it is where I choose to live. Race has nothing to do with it. If it were, and as a minority of the state, I would see myself as a racial radical and NOT live here. But I choose to see people for what they are and not the color of their skin. You on the other hand may have some serious issues.
