CTAHR Scholarships for New Students

 

CTAHR offers the following four scholarship opportunities to our new students who are starting in the Fall 2018 semester:

  1. The CTAHR Dean’s Scholarship is available to all incoming and new freshmen with a declared CTAHR major who have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 and a combined SAT score of at least 1300 (critical reading and math) or a composite ACT score of at least 27.

    Students who are selected to receive the CTAHR Dean’s Scholarship will be awarded a $5,000 scholarship during their first year and are eligible to receive a $5,000 scholarship for up to three years thereafter.

  2. CTAHR Native Hawaiian New Student Scholarship is available to all incoming and new freshmen and transfer students who are of Native Hawaiian ancestry with a declared CTAHR major. The CTAHR Native Hawaiian New Student Scholarship was created to support Native Hawaiian students that have an interest in supporting and strengthening families, agricultural and food systems, and the natural environment. It was also created to support the University of Hawai’i at Manoa’s Strategic Plan, which supports the institution as a Native Hawaiian place of learning and an indigenous-serving institution.

    Students who are selected to receive the CTAHR Native Hawaiian New Student Scholarship will be awarded a $4,000 scholarship during their first year and are eligible to receive a $2,000 scholarship for up to three years thereafter (incoming freshmen: 3 years, incoming sophomores: 2 years, incoming juniors: 1 year).

  3. The CTAHR Centennial Scholarship is available to all incoming and new freshmen and transfer students with a declared CTAHR major who are first-generation college students. First generation college students are defined as first in their families attending college, whose parents have not earned a bachelor’s degree. (If a student’s sibling has already earned a bachelor’s degree, they are no longer considered a first-generation college student.)

  4. The CTAHR New Student Scholarship is available to all incoming and new freshmen and transfer students with a declared CTAHR major.
    Students who receive any of these scholarships are also eligible for other University scholarships. Students who are awarded these scholarships will also receive academic and student support and counseling to help them succeed. Scholarships will be made to full-time classified students in CTAHR for the academic year.

New incoming freshmen and transfer students should complete the online application and submit the required essay and transcripts to Mandy Chen (mchen22@hawaii.edu) by March 1, 2018. 

Students who are awarded a new student scholarship will be notified by the end of March 2018.
