Each year, we provide more than half of our student body with scholarships and financial aid. Last year, we raised over $2.2 million dollars in support of student success through the collective commitment of 726 HPU friends! Our friends’ generosity directly impacts the success of our students, helping with everything from scholarship support to the:
- Soccer Fund: supporting student-athletes and helping with travel, equipment, and field maintenance expenses.
- Learning Commons: building a state-of-the-art learning and technology center at Aloha Tower Marketplace.
- Feed mill prototype: helping reduce Hawai‘i’s imported food dependence and increase local food production.
As HPU’s spring commencement speaker, Mayor Billy Kenoi of Hawai‘i Island, put it: “Education is the great equalizer.”
It is only through the help of our friends that HPU can offer so many students the resources they need to pursue higher education. Kūlia i ka nu‘u—strive for the best—only together can we build a brighter tomorrow for our students.
