The University of Hawai’i is offering a series of scholarship workshops for native Hawaiians interested in pursuing a college education.

The effort is part of a statewide initiative held in partnership with several agencies including the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, to bring scholarship opportunities to under-served communities across the state.

The workshops offer information on resources and financial aid available to native Hawaiians.
