A $100,000 gift from Hawaiian Airlines has established a scholarship for University of Hawai‘i students studying information technology, computer science, cybersecurity and related computer technology programs at one of the University of Hawai‘i System’s three four-year universities.

The Hawaiian Airlines Information Technology Endowed Scholarship is the first University of Hawai‘i scholarship established by the Honolulu-based airline.

The new scholarship will help students build IT careers in Hawaiʻi and beyond. It’s available to students pursuing a degree in programs including information technology from the Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, computer science degrees at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, and cybersecurity at the University of Hawai‘i at West Oʻahu.


Hawaiian Airlines is a longtime supporter of other University of Hawai‘i programs, including athletics and the Aircraft Mechanic Apprenticeship Program at Honolulu Community College.

Hawaiian Airlines is also one of the local employers participating in the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s IT/Cyber Leap Start Experience Excelerator Program, training UH students to enter the IT sector by providing real-world professional experience for students approaching graduation and for recent University of Hawai‘i graduates seeking work experience.
