Renee Heyum Award

The Below is quoted directly from an email circulated by the UH-M Center for Pacific Islands Studies:

The Renee Heyum award is a partial tuition scholarship for Pacific Islanders awarded every spring for the following academic year through the STAR scholarship database application system:   While most of the scholarships on STAR have a deadline of Feb. 14th, the Heyum award’s deadline is midnight, March 7th.

If you login to the database above and search for HEYUM you’ll find the description of the award. If you click “apply” in the top right hand corner you will see what I have attached here as a PDF. The application requires a couple of PDF documents to be uploaded to the application site, including a 3 page statement (details on the attachment), and scanned unofficial transcripts (STAR transcripts are ok). You will also need the names and email addresses of three people who can write reference letters for you. The references will be sent a link to complete (or upload) their reference letter online by March 7th, midnight.
