Founders’ Scholarship

Founders’ Scholarship

In Partnership with the Public Education Foundation (PEF)

Clark County School District (CCSD) High School seniors with a minimum 2.5 GPA and who plan to attend an accredited post-secondary college or university, may apply for this scholarship.

Preference will be given (but not required) to Hawaiian/part Hawaiian students and dependents of members of the Hawaiian Civic Club. To qualify, students must attend the college/university full-time by taking a minimum of twelve credit hours per semester.

Application period has closed as of 31 Jan 2024 — We are awaiting the Mahalo notes and pictures for the 2024 awardees (Jordan Quilla & Zachery Zrebiec).  Hulo!

Link for the 2024/2025 application will be published on the Public Education Foundation’s website in October.  Two scholarships in the amount of $750 each are available to be awarded.

Verification of college enrollment (class schedule) will be required before a check is mailed to the college. Scholarship funds must be applied toward tuition, fees and other appropriate educational expenses. These funds will be disbursed in equal payments over two semesters. Contact LVHCC for additional information on Scholarships.
