Awards and Scholarships
As a student, your financial aid is probably one of your foremost concerns when considering different schools and programs. At a per-credit institution like the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, securing financial aid can be especially important to allow you to take the classes you want to without overloading every semester just to keep costs down. Aside from a broad range of other funding resources available to you as a student, the UH-Manoa Economics Department offers several awards exclusive to us, as well as national-level awards for which our students are highly competitive.
