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.
