The UH System Scholarships are open to students who are admitted as a regular student attending any of the ten campuses of the University of Hawai‘i System.

The UH System Common Scholarship Application is a single application for over forty different scholarships.

These scholarships are made available by the generosity of private individuals and organizations who wish to reward students for a wide variety of accomplishments, including, but not limited to, academic achievement, service to the school and community, leadership ability, first-generation college-going, and specific major and career choices. Some take into consideration financial need and unique personal backgrounds. Availability of certain scholarships is dependent upon the availability of funds.

Getting Started

Before starting your application, review the application requirements and other scholarship documents located on the website.

The online UH System Common Scholarship Application (hosted by NextGen Web Solutions) has a security feature that causes the application to time out after 30 minutes.

It is highly recommended that you prepare your personal statement and essays ahead of time and upload or copy/paste them to the application.

You may save and continue your application any time before submission, but once you submit your application you will be unable to return to make changes.


The deadline for the UH System Scholarship application was March 1, 2016 at 4:00 pm (HST).
