Deadline Nears for HMSA Kaimana Scholarship Applications
High school students who will graduate this year and are interested in Hawai‘i Medical Service Association’s Kaimana scholarships have just a few weeks left to apply for this year’s awards.
HMSA is celebrating the 17th year of its Kaimana Awards & Scholarship Program, which honors Hawai‘i high school seniors and high schools for excellence in academics, athletics, community service, healthy activities and sportsmanship.
HMSA will award up to 15 students $5,000 scholarships each.
To be eligible, applicants must graduate with a grade-point average of 2.75 or higher. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, requirements have been relaxed and participation in athletics and involvement in community service are encouraged but not required.
Applicants must also submit an official transcript, write a personal statement and essay about community and well-being and submit two letters of recommendation from school faculty, mentors or coaches.
