Winners and finalists of the HPUbiz4good Scholarship Challenge

Honolulu, Hawaii — Ten Hawaii high school seniors will receive four-year full-tuition merit scholarships at Hawai‘i Pacific University as winners of the HPUbiz4good Scholarship Challenge. The new program, developed and hosted by the College of Business, rewarded students for their academic achievements and the development of original ideas designed to positively impact Hawaii.

The challenge began with students posting their ideas on social media, followed by participation at workshops led by HPU faculty, staff, students, local entrepreneurs and social innovation experts, held at HPU’s Aloha Tower Marketplace (ATM) campus. The final competition on February 18th included a set of finalists who produced “pitch” videos, a project proposal, and visual displays of their proposed projects.
