The Risk Management Association Foundation offers scholarships to students in an undergraduate program who are interested in working in the banking industry after graduation. The RMA Foundation is awarding over $200,000 annually in scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $8,000. Winners may reapply for continuation of their scholarships for up to two additional years, provided each student fulfills the renewal requirements and maintains their free student membership with RMA.

Through a partnership with the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) and the Waimanālo Hawaiian Homes Association (WHHA), a Hawai‘i Pacific University scholarship — with a goal to educate more native Hawaiians — was awarded. The WHHA let students within the Waimanālo homestead know of the opportunity to apply for the scholarship, and Shylee Peahi was named the recipient.

A 2016 graduate of the Kamehameha Schools Kapālama campus, Peahi plans to major in business and minor in human services.

“Being informed of my acceptance to Hawai‘i Pacific University was a moment of great joy,” Peahi, who has an older sister Shereen in the HPU Nursing program, said.   

Peahi wants to make a difference in her community through the business degree she strives to gain. She said “education is the key, unlocking the doorway for a better future.”
