College is within reach and the University of Hawaiʻi wants to help make the application process easier.

To better support Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander high school graduates, UH and partners the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement and the Native Hawaiian Education Association are sponsoring a series of online college application events. The College Application ʻAha are scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesdays, April 13 and May 11.

Participants also will be eligible to win a $500 scholarship to UH, which will be awarded each night.

“As the pandemic continues to evolve, we are excited to welcome students to our amazing UH campuses,” said UH Maui College Chancellor Lui Hokoana in a press release. “Our colleges provide a wide variety of affordable educational and career training opportunities for everyone and we have dedicated counselors who are ready to help support our students in every way to succeed. The time to apply is now.”

Class of 2022 graduates can also take advantage of free advising this summer through Hawai‘i P-20’s Next Steps to Your Future program. According to the press release, every student who opts into the program will be connected to a professional advisor who will provide one-on-one support through online advising appointments, mobile texting and access to on-demand resources.


In addition, class of 2022 seniors who previously took UH classes in high school will have the opportunity to enroll in a free online six-week summer class from July 5–Aug. 15 through UH Community Colleges’ Momentum program.
