KS Scholars Program Accepting Applications
Kamehameha School’s Scholars Program is now accepting applications from students entering 9th and 10th grade on the islands of Maui, O’ahu, Hawai’i, and Kaua’i until April 30, 2019.
Kamehameha Scholars is a nationally acclaimed college and career counseling program that provides students in grades 9 through 12 with post-secondary planning, year-round workshops, and interactive lessons grounded in the Hawaiian culture.
Students will discover and assess their skills, interests, and values and explore matching post-high institutions and career options to develop plans for their future. Kamehameha Scholars is a year-round program, beginning with an introduction to the program for new scholars during the summer prior to their first year in the program. Workshops and other guidance activities are held during non-school times—primarily weekends, evenings, and school intersessions—at various times during the school year.
Scholars earn points for attending program activities and completing required assignments during the course of their enrollment with Kamehameha Scholars. Those points are translated to dollars, and each scholar who remains in the program through high school graduation will earn a merit scholarship to be used toward his or her college education. Scholars who enroll in college immediately following their high school graduation will also receive counseling and guidance services from Kamehameha Scholars throughout their first year of college.
Scholars are expected to attend workshops, complete assignments, and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 at their schools in order to remain enrolled in the program.
