Stronger Together Hawaii Scholarship Fund

Stronger Together Hawai'i Scholarship Fund
Helping Hawai’i students affected by COVID-19

The Stronger Together Hawai’i Scholarship Fund awarded over $2 million to Stronger Scholars - 2020 Hawai‘i public high school graduates who participated in the  Next Steps to Your Future Program. Stronger Scholars must submit a 2021-2022 HCF Common Application to renew their scholarship award for next year.

Hawaii Community Foundation's unconditional love and support is something I will never forget; I'm not only receiving from the donors of HCF, but also learning from them how to give with a big and steady heart.
