At the core of our mission is the vision of our patron, Prince Kuhio, for the upward mobility of the Hawaiian people through education. With this in mind, we make a commitment to fund scholarship recipients for their two or four years of higher education. Applications are open to undergraduate and graduate students. Preference is given to applicants of Hawaiian ancestry and members or member relatives of the Prince Kuhio Hawaiian Civic Club.
Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana?ole formed the first Hawaiian civic club in 1918 to stimulate civic efforts and education within the Hawaiian community and promote Hawaiian culture. Preservation and perpetuation of Hawaiian values, culture and education are at the core of the mission and vision of the Prince Kuhio Hawaiian Civic Club. Throughout their generosity, the Prince Jonah Kuhio Hawaiian Civil Club offers scholarships.
