2010 Hui Makaala Scholarship


Hui Makaala is currently soliciting applications to the 2010 Hui Makaala Scholarship.  Over the years, it has awarded hundreds of academic scholarships to Hawai`i’s college-bound high school graduates, who not only have the drive to succeed but also an interest in community service and the rich tapestry of Okinawan culture.  In 2008, Hui Makaala awarded $2,000 and $3,000 scholarships to nine recipients for a total of $20,000 awarded.  In 2009, Hui Makaala opened its scholarships to currently enrolled college students (8 total scholarships awarded, 1 of which was to a student currently enrolled in college).
