Chaminade University Accepting Applications For Native Hawaiian Scholarships

HONOLULU—March 8, 2010—Chaminade University is currently accepting applications for half-tuition scholarships from eligible students of Native Hawaiian ancestry for the 2010-11 academic year. Through the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs Scholarship, incoming first-year students whose families are members of civic clubs in the islands or on the continental U.S. may apply for scholarships. Additionally, Chaminade University offers the Department of Hawaiian Homelands Student Educational Opportunity Grant Scholarship, also for half-tuition, to students living on Hawaiian homestead lands. Chaminade also offers the same educational opportunity grant scholarship for graduates of the Na Lei Na`auao Charter School in the form of the Na Lei Na`auao Student Educational Opportunity Grant Scholarship.

“Chaminade University’s commitment to the Native Hawaiian community is deep,” said President Bro. Bernard J. Ploeger, SM, Ph.D. “Some fifteen percent of our day undergraduate students are of Native Hawaiian descent. We are passionate about helping Hawaiian students here and abroad achieve their educational goals.”

In addition to the scholarships for Native Hawaiian students, there are a number of internships also available for current students. Na Ala Hele I Ke Ao is Chaminade’s Hawaiian Leadership Program. This program, begun in 2003 through a grant from the Administration for Native Americans, showcases Hawaiian leadership through the development of cultural values and exposure with Hawaiian leaders, places and events. It is open to all students. 

Federally recognized as a Title III, Native Hawaiian-serving institution, Chaminade University has received generous support from the U.S. Department of Education upgrading classroom facilities and infrastructure, including a complete renovation of the science labs. Chaminade continues to develop unique methods of addressing Native Hawaiian educational issues.
