GEAR Up Scholarship Info

GEAR Up Hawai'i offers Early Admit scholarships to Hawai'i public school students who participate in the free-and-reduced lunch program. The scholarship covers the tuition/fees and required textbooks for one 3 or 4 credit course. Priority awards are given to students who are economically disadvantaged and have received no prior Early Admit scholarship funding from GEAR Up. High school seniors tend to have priority over sophomores and juniors. 

To apply, click on the "Economically Disadvantaged" field when filling out the dual-credit enrollment form (required for each semester of Early Admit participation). The dual-credit enrollment form can be found at http://www.hawaii.edu/dualcredit/
