The Office of the Chancellor is committed to building increased awareness of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa as a global leading research institution. It strives to solve society’s problems, generate new opportunities that benefit society and serve as a leading economic driver for the state. As part of this effort, the University focuses on three priorities:
- pursuing student success/transformation,
- increasing research, and
- grounding UH Mānoa in the traditional values of the Native Hawaiian culture.
UH Mānoa assists students in realizing their academic dreams, passions and goals through steadfast commitment to financial aid, scholarship, grants and other financial opportunities. Examples include:
- Mānoa Chancellor’s Scholarships
These merit-based scholarships are offered to first-year freshmen who are high-achieving Hawaiʻi high school graduates.
- Centennial and Centennial Bonus Scholarships
These merit-based scholarships are available to incoming freshmen, and are open to residents, non-residents and international students.
- John A. Burns School of Medicine Scholars Program: Doctor of Medicine Early Acceptance Program for Entering Hawaiʻi Resident Freshmen
This innovative program offers a select number of incoming freshmen the opportunity for guaranteed acceptance into the John A. Burns School of Medicine upon completion of baccalaureate degrees.
A major public research institution that has earned national and international recognition, UH Mānoa is also home to critical research enterprises that serve as a key economic generator for the state. This productive enterprise generates more than $1 million per day through partnerships with other UH institutions, local businesses, national and international entities, and government agencies.
