If you are applying for private schools other than Kamehameha Schools and are interested in tuition scholarship assistance, then the Kīpona Scholarship Program is for you!
We have partnered with an extensive list of private schools across Hawai‘i to provide need-based scholarships to students attending those schools.
Entry points are grades K, 6 and 9. New applicants must complete the KS campus admissions application to be considered for the Kīpona Scholarship.
Due to an unforeseen technical glitch with our system, some applicants were unable to submit their online applications on the evening of Sept. 30.
To honor the integrity of our application process, we have extended the application deadline for our campus and Kīpona Scholarship programs to Sunday, Oct. 6, 11:59 p.m. All applications submitted by the extended deadline will be honored and considered on-time.
For returning Kīpona applicants, start the process in TADS.
For new Kīpona applicants, you must complete the KS campus admissions application to be considered for the Kīpona Scholarship. You can apply for our campus program and/or the Kīpona Scholarship using one application.
