The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa has announced the 2003 Regents and Presidential Scholars. The UH Board of Regents established the Regents and Presidential Scholarships to support students with a record of outstanding academic achievement.

Regents Scholarships are awarded to 20 outstanding freshmen who receive at least a 1,300 combined mathematics and verbal score on the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), maintain at least a 3.5 GPA in academic subjects in high school, and whose extracurricular achievements are shown to be remarkable.

Presidential Scholarships are awarded to 10 college juniors who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.7 for all college level work, a record of sustained progress in academic courses, and evidence of superior academic achievement or creative endeavor.

Regents Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for four years of undergraduate study, and Presidential Scholars receive a full tuition waiver for two years of undergraduate study. In addition, all scholars receive $4,000 a year and a one-time travel grant of $2,000. The program is administered by the Student Equity, Excellence and Diversity Office at UH Mānoa.

Recipients of the prestigious scholarships were recently recognized at an awards dinner held at the UH Mānoa campus.
