Financial Support for AGC Students

AGC students are not eligible for GAships or Achievement Scholarship tuition support (see Office of Graduate Education rules), owing to the fact that these are forms of financial support for degree-seeking students provided by the State of Hawai‘i. Similarly, AGC students are not eligible to apply for U.S. federal loans because loans are only available to degree-seeking students.

Occasionally, funding from outside sources can allow the department to support highly qualified AGC in SLS students. AGC in SLS students may apply for lectureship and casual-hire positions in the ELI and HELP, and they are also eligible to apply to the ‘Oihana Maika‘i Fund for Professional Development and the Elizabeth Carr-Holmes Scholarship to carry out research for the scholarly paper of the AGC in SLS.
