For Neighbor Island Nonprofit Organizations

Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) is offering a limited number of travel scholarships for neighbor island nonprofit organizations to increase access and utilization of professional development training that will support organizational capacity. These funds are intended to defray travel costs for nonprofit employees or Board members related to attending training sessions, conferences and educational programs on Oahu or another neighbor island location. Scholarships must be approved by HCF prior to travel and are offered on a first come, first served basis by calendar year. Travel scholarships are $200 per person and may be used for airline and ground transportation expenses.
